It was a perfect early spring day for the annual Elmira Maple Syrup Festival. We arrived well before 9 AM and Arthur Street was already jammed with pedestrians. It was the busiest I have seen it in a few years and when we returned to Kitchener, the traffic was backed up all the way to Waterloo on the expressway. There is a good variety of street food for sale besides pancakes and maple syrup.
My husband always buys summer sausage at the Kitchen Kuttings stand at the St. Jacobs Farmers Market. The store in downtown Elmira features a large assortment of homemade jams, pickles and preserves as well as cheese, bulk foods and kitchen supplies. I found lids for all sorts of jars such as those originally sold with cheese whiz and pasta sauces. Kitchen Kuttings is owned and operated by sisters Lydia and Elmeda Weber and Nancy Shantz. It is featured on the Waterloo Region Foodlink website and you can find a link below to a full article about the business which was originally published in the Local Harvest newsletter.
