One of my family’s favorite Ottawa spots to hang out during the summer is the Ottawa Farmer’s Market at Brewer Park. And I can’t decide what I love more – all of the delicious fruits and veggies, or the various other handmade yums available! Either way, I am HUGE on supporting local businesses and farmers. We live in a society where so many wonderful things are overlooked in favor of what’s cheaper or faster or more convenient. It’s nice to stop and appreciate the hard work of local business owners, farmers, bakers and artisans. Ottawa certainly has no shortage of these fabulous people!
A couple of weekends ago the kids asked to try one of the delicious hand made ICICOOL ice treats being sold by the fab folks at Karumba. If I’m being completely honest, we had no idea this little company existed before our visit on this particular day but we were happy to have discovered it. You can read more about their delicious, organic, natural ice treats here. Seen below, my kids are gobbling up what I *think* were Strawberry Basil. You can view the full list of their (super fun and interesting!) flavours here. We hope to take a trip back to the market in the not too distant future to give some other flavours a try. There’s GOT to be a coconut and a pumpkin pie one with my name on it!
