Here we are now, in the fall of 2020. Strangest year I have ever lived through. How about you? I am super grateful to have had the opportunity to be at some summer markets in the Okanagan selling marinades and to have met so many interesting people. Some of you are now lovers of the marinades and have become customers. You had faith in how good the marinades taste and took a chance and purchased some jars. Because of Covid rules, I could not offer you a free sample to taste and you bought anyways. Markets have ended for me and I really don't anticipate selling at any local Christmas artisan events. So, when you would like to buy some more, please check out this website for stores carrying our marinades in Alberta and BC. And if there aren't any retailers near you, please order online and we will ship them to your door. Free shipping when you buy a case of 12 and yes, you can mix and match if you'd like.

We are super happy to announce that Jerseyland Organics in Grand Forks, BC now carries our 2 flavours of marinades. I think they have THE best dairy products that are made from Certified Organic Whole Jersey milk from their own dairy herd. At Jerseyland they not only produce wholesome organic products, they believe in the humane treatment of animals and take responsible stewardship of their farmlands. This is a very good thing.
And did you know they have a Jerseyland Country Store too? They sell an array of local foods, a great selection of locally raised meats, body care products, home cleaning products, snacks, dried fruit, and much much more!! They set up a great area for families to enjoy their animals like goats, pigs, turkeys, a goose, peacocks and more! Next time you visit, stay a while and enjoy their farm! Check them out and follow them on face book.
Bareback Marinate sono felici di annunciare that we are now selling in the Willow Park Italian Centre in Calgary, Alberta and still available in the three Italian Centres in Edmonton, Alberta.
Did you know that they a retail delivery department? At the end of March 2020 the Italian Centres in Edmonton launched delivery service. They said, “With the current state of the local food and beverage industry, our wholesale department who once serviced restaurants daily have temporarily closed. Like many of you - we had to change course. Overnight, our wholesale crew turned into a retail delivery department and now, we can provide customers in Edmonton, St. Albert and Sherwood Park this complimentary service.
When you place your order with the Edmonton Italian Centres, please consider adding a jar or two of Rosemary Express and Herbs & Lavender. Go Wild + Put it on everything! Add it to all Meats, Seafood, Tofu, Roasted Vegetables & Potatoes plus Quinoa & Pasta salads. And when you add equal amounts of your preferred oil, it makes a delicious bread dip. Some customers mix it with tomato sauce and use it for a pizza and flatbreads.
UPDATE: It has been a great month at the Peachland Farmers and Crafters Market. Great vendors that have become friends and it's always great meeting people and selling them awesome marinades for their meals they create. I want to say that I will sure be there on Sunday August 30th but no guarantees for September. I am playing it by ear for their last month. You can Shop at many retail locations and can find store locations on my website. Thanks for all your support.
This Civic August Long Weekend Holiday is not a statutory holiday although it's a day off for many employees across Canada. It is probably the busiest day on highways as thousands of families go camping and to their holiday homes etc this weekend. Please stay safe, drive safe and be kind.
If you are looking for an outdoor location to visit, come to the Peachland Farmers and Crafters Market on Sunday August 2nd. I will be there with both marinades. Yes, the Rosemary Express is available again. Come to the beautiful town of Peachland, a location right on Okanagan lake and one of my favourites places in the world to hang out in the summer.
