Market Updates

Hear from REEL Mac & Cheese

REEL Mac & Cheese along with Dutchlicious Catering will be on location at our market for our 1 Year Anniversary Event!

“REEL Mac and cheese offers gourmet, made from scratch macaroni and cheese with a variety of movie themed menu items. We have been in the mobile food biz for over ten years having operated first class food concession trailers successfully at events such as the Calgary Stampede and The PNE. You can now find one of our two REEL Mac and Cheese Food Trucks at anywhere from a birthday party to a huge music festival. Have macaroni will travel.

While macaroni and cheese itself is slightly retro we have given it a modern twist with menu offerings such as Slumdog Millionaire that includes curry paste and peas and The Green Mile that is topped with freshly cooked broccoli florets and crispy onions.

We are serving up inspired comfort food made from scratch right on the truck. We start with real butter, add whole milk, select spices and seven different cheeses….the result is creamy deliciousness. Our food makes you feel warm, happy and slightly nostalgic.

Created and owned by the husband and wife team Suzanne and Perry Poudrier. She is the business savvy to his culinary skills, the brains to the beauty, The Mac to the Cheese!

The team got even better in the fall of 2016 when their daughter, Danielle and son-in-law, Mikael Karlsson joined in. Now there is a whole lot of macaroni going on!”

Staff Highlight: Taylor

We are so thankful for our team for all their hard work this last year. Taylor is one of our team members who was hired in the launch of our new market, he has been with us nearly 1 year now!
This young man always has a smile on his face and has an amazing, “can do” attitude that will take him very far in life. Taylor’s goal is to get into ministry or teaching. He is currently volunteering in kid’s ministry, preparing for his upcoming internship!
We asked Taylor what his favourite thing about working with Ralph’s Farm Market is. He said, the people…the staff and the customers. He especially enjoys helping customers find solutions. There is this one customer who comes regularly to get 20 boxes of apples. Together, they load all the apples into his Honda Civic, strategically of course!
Thank you Taylor for your hard work and dedication at each shift, we are excited for your future!

From Hay Wagon to Farm Market

Thank you to the many of you who have grown with us since the early days. It’s hard to believe how quickly the time goes by and how much we have all grown. Here in this photo is Jenny, Jason, Julie and Karen. You may have seen their photo on our time line above our veggie wall in our market. From a young age these four were involved. From helping with samples, harvesting potatoes and packaging produce they always found a job to do.

Do you have any “old photos” from the early days? Whether it was at an event at our market, something you made with your shopping haul or a previous staff member who has been with us along the journey? We’d love for you to email us & share it along with a few words!
