Farmers Market, sort of
Fresh bread, local, organic produce all in Aylmer!
Aylmerites in search of fresh, local, organic food should visit La Boulangerie aux Deux Frères on Saturday mornings, when Aylmer Backyard Farms, a small multi-plot urban farm comprised of backyard gardens in Aylmer, sets up shop, offering top-quality vegetables, herbs and flowers, homemade granola and organic sunflower oil. Farmer Anne Janssen recommends a visit to the bakery, as well. “A visit to La Boulangerie aux Deux Frères on Saturday morning in the summer is a lovely experience. They are master artisanal bakers and every product is fantastic. You can have a coffee on the bench outside and check out our vegetables.”
Most of the produce offered for sale is grown within 10 kilometres of the bakery. Aylmer Backyard Farms is at the bakery every Saturday morning between between 9 am and 1 pm.
