We’re back!

May 4, 2015

Yes, we are back at Lansdowne Park, after 3 years away at Brewer Park, outside in the sunshine!


This past weekend marks the beginning of our season at the Ottawa Farmers’ Market.  Even though the market went through the winter, on Sundays, inside the Aberdeen Pavilion, traditionally the market starts in May.  It was wonderful being inside that majestic oasis away from the bitter winter we had this year!  A big thanks to all the customers and friends who braved the weather to come to the market!


The good news is the market won’t be just Sundays >>> Starting this week, the market will be open Wednesdays and Fridays, 11am til 6pm.

We will be there baking and serving potatoes, pasties, freshly squeezed lemonade and locally roasted coffee (Poppa Bean of course).  Why not drop by at lunch or dinner.

Then starting May 16th, the OFM in Westboro starts, 9.30am til 3pm.

And, and, we want to get our food truck out more over the summer…watch for us in Kanata, Algonquin College and at several events around Ottawa.  Dates and details to follow!

Oh boy, its going to be a busy summer!!!


Exciting Pasty News!

October 23, 2014


We have gone retail, or at least our pasties have.  Our delicious pasties are now available at the West End Well at 969 Wellington Street West, Ottawa.

So, drop by this wonderful establishment, grab a coffee or bite to eat, and mid week pasty for snack or dinner.  Heat them up at home and serve with a salad or by themselves.

SPU-LOG (Spud Blog)

April 14, 2014

Just wanted to let all our spud ‘eads know that we will NOT be at the experimental farm for Easter! 

YES we know, can’t imagine Easter and NOT being at the farm. Unfortunately after 14 years of being “the food” at the farm, another company apparently did a deal…and that’s it we’re done!  All’s fair in love and spuds we guess…well maybe not fair, but onwards and spudwards! 

We had a great time there, and have made many friends, and hopefully, loyal customers who will find us at all our other locations!

So locations, locations ……we have great and exciting things planned for the year ahead!

From May 1st you can find us every Thursday and Friday, 10am til 5pm,  baking on the street at Spark Street Farmers’ Market

with our Victorian baking oven. Drop by for lunch! 

Saturday will see us baking at Westboro Farmers’ Market, and Sundays at Brewer Park Farmers’ Market…busy, busy, busy!

We also will have the spud truck out at other locations (to be announced!) selling our delicious freshly baked spuds, wedges and of course our range of pasties! 

Follow us on twitter/facebook and our spu-log, to see where you can pick up a freshly baked pasty or potato!
