Fresh produce in Newcastle

The Village of Newcastle has another great option for farm fresh produce. Sarah Clark, owner of her newly formed company, Clark Produce, is set up just outside the plaza at 282 King Avenue East. The young entrepreneur has been gardening for years, and has for the last couple of years set up a stand to sell the fruits of her labour; beans, potatoes, zucchini, tomatoes, berries in season, as well as her own jams, jellies, pickles and baked goods. It has become a full-time job for her. “When I’m not here or in the garden, I’m in the store (Clark Meats) doing the baking,” she says. Brother Josh Clark is a huge help, both on the retail side at their stand and at home working on their vegetable plots. Other produce is available as well, and as Sarah says, “we like to keep it as local as possible.” Hours of operation are Fridays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays 9 a.m. till 4 p.m. Often the produce is harvested the very morning it goes to their well-stocked market stall. Tough to get any fresher than that, unless you grow your own.
