Parsons Farm

Posted on July 28, 2013 by Klee


     This is our 3rd summer here at Le Marché. It is also our 3rd summer of working with Parsons Farm in Keremeos, one of the oldest farms in the Similkameen Valley. Quentin has a passion not only for your more recognizable summer fruits, peaches and apricots but also more unusual varieties like heirloom squash and my current favourite Lemon and Lime basil. His sister and her husband are the couple behind farmersdotter Organics, preserving amazing things like garlic scapes, peach jam with fireball whiskey and of course their famous roasted garlic scape salt. Like all things good and handmade, there are limited quantities of the preserves so don't wait. Some people have already started stock piling for Christmas!
   We have been receiving a weekly supply of what's ripe on the trees, fat peaches, apricots, plums and soon nectarines. If you'd like to pre-order so you don't miss out, just drop us a line at   Happy Summer!
