Summer 2018 is here and we’re looking forward to all the awesome produce that will become available at the market. We’re going to do two small menu changes throughout the Summer months to reflect the quickly passing vegetable seasons. The first iteration sees the Ms. Piggy yield to the new BLTC and the Brit to the new Tom-yum chicken. These new items aren’t so new for us, they’re tried and tested, but they do reflect the early Summer months very well. Look for another change-up coming in late July or early August.
Our winter menu sees the departure of the more warm-weathered Tom-Yum and the Feta, and heralds the return of the Baroness and the Julius. Respectively, they are a black bean and roasted vegetable burger and a chicken Caesar salad sandwich. Both items are back by popular demand, and even us non-vegetarians love this veggie burger. Winter sandwich selections can be tough to keep in season, but these ones are looking great.
We’ll be open on Saturday, December 23rd and then closed for the following week. We’ll be open again Saturday, December 30th and then re-opening on Wednesday, January 3rd.
Wishing you a great end to the year and an easy ramp into the Holiday season.
Time for another menu change! This one’s a quick and easy one, rotating two past sandwiches back onto the roster for the springtime. We’re looking forward to more fresh Ontario vegetables and fruits coming to the Market soon, but in the meantime, we’re bringing back two crowd favourites – the “ms. piggy” and the “you feta believe it!”
We’re happy to be supporting Lutherwood’s Steps for Kids event for the third year in a row with fresh wraps for participants and volunteers. It’s coming quickly on May 7th. Please check out the event and sponsor someone you know who’s running – it’s a fun event for a great cause - http://www.lutherwoodstepsforkids.ca
We’ve been making bacon non-stop since we opened as we really enjoy the process, love making a truly local pork product, and have had different iterations on a bacon sandwich for our entire life here at Breadbaron. We’ve had success with holiday bacon pre-orders around Christmas-time – we decided then, why not open up pre-orders for bacon for anytime? This way we can reduce or eliminate the times when customers show up and we don’t have enough bacon to spare for retail. Order form below, try it out!
It’s been a while since we’ve found the time for a blog post on here, but we’ve got a few newsworthy items to discuss so it’s about time!
We’ve recently entered into a partnership agreement with Epicater, a small Toronto-based company that helps small restaurants link up with larger catering clients. We’re excited about the possibility of serving more lunches to clients in larger offices.
In other news, we’ve upgraded from our limited fryer set-up to a full-on industrial gas fryer. The results are great! We’ve got cleaner french-fries that cook faster, which will reduce our wait times over the counter – news we’re sure you’ll appreciate if you’re a Saturday visitor.
Moving into the holiday season, we’ll have our pre-order form up for our holiday bacon soon. If you need a reminder, that’s our usual Ontario pork belly, but cured a little differently – with warm spices and orange. We sell it vacuum-sealed. Makes a great gift!
We’re changing up our menu for October and November. Gone are the TLC and the El Granjero, due to tomatoes and corn respectively rotating out of season. Our new offerings in their place are as follows. A fall-inspired bacon sandwich called ‘The Crandaddy’ garnished with an apple and cranberry chutney, spinach and cheddar cheese. For the vegetarians we’re going with a veggie burger called ‘The Baroness’ made from black beans and roasted vegetables – this cooks on our grill and sits on a toasted whole wheat kaiser with crisp lettuce, roasted garlic mayonnaise, and pickled red onions.
The Oktoberfest Festhalle this year will be at our home turf in the Kitchener Market as a substitute for the usual Frederick and King location. We’re leaving the O-Fest menu selections to the experts, but please do stop on by for lunch sometime while the the ceremonies are on – the building will be licensed for this occasion. Prost!
It’s a great time of the year for sandwiches! The Farmer’s Market is rife with beautiful veggies for the summer – pickling cucumbers, tomatoes, berries and fresh greens of all sorts – corn is starting to come in and we’ve got new potatoes to look forward to soon. We just got a massive harvest of garlic scapes from Nick’s dad and we’re looking forward to getting our hands on this year’s hot pepper harvest. Pickling time is now so we’re hoarding jars! We’re celebrating a fresher time with a departure from the menu of the Ms. Piggy and the B.B. Squash. We’re treating our bacon right with tomato, lettuce, chèvre and chipotle, hold the pork for vegetarians. Back by popular demand is also the El Granjero, a chorizo sausage patty garnished with a corn, bell pepper and lime salsa on a bun.
We’ll be repeating last year’s vacation itinerary, closing on August 16th and returning on the 30th. We’re excited to rejuvenate and do a bit of traveling. We’ll also be rocking some deep cleaning, remodeling, and organizing at the stand.
Our breakfast sandwich – consisting of our house made bacon, pan-fried farm egg any style, leaf lettuce and mayonnaise on a whole wheat kaiser – $6 after taxes – has graduated beyond being a Saturday morning only sandwich. We have been getting some interest in this sandwich outside the times we had been serving it. We’ve decided to promote it to a full-time menu item, just not for delivery. If you want to try out our simple but great bacon and egg sandwich, but it’s not Saturday before 11am, you are now in luck!
We’re winding things down for the Holidays around here at the Kitchener Market. The upcoming Saturday, the 19th, should be a good one as many are home from out of town and will be stocking up on farm-fresh goodies for festive times.
We’re planning to be here on the 22nd of December for a clean up and shut down day, so anyone looking to pick up last-minute bacon, that day will be the last chance before Christmas proper. We’ll be back on January 2nd (and a couple of days before prepping back up to open) with a menu update including an old favourite. Stay tuned!
Closed – December 22nd – January 1st
Open – January 2nd
