Simple Snacking @ Burlington Mall Farmer’s Market

Today was a PA Day so I had both of my little companions home. We went for a quick outing to the farmer’s market at the Burlington mall.

Our visit was to break up the day and to pick up some simple ingredients for lunch – and some tarts.

As I was buying some Bing cherries, I spied a loaf of bread beside the cash register, inquired where it came from and made it our next stop. The loaf was so soft I couldn’t wait to get home and indulge.

Besides the samples, my kids also love being able to check out – and pet – the many dogs that visit the market with their owners. photo

Courtesy of the vendors, my sandwich of the day became: cheddar cheese bread, sliced hothouse tomato, basil and old cheddar cheese, lightly toasted with a hint of mayo and salt.

Of course, I had a butter tart for dessert and it was divine. The kids snacked on cherries on the way home.

I think I’ve subconsciously formed a pastry plan in the back of my mind: to try as many different kinds of butter tarts as I can over the next few months! While I do love a homemade pie, butter tarts are my kryptonite. The best I’ve had to date came from Humble Pie in Baysville, Ontario.

I think I need to take a trip along the Butter Tart Trail this summer.
