Terra Greenhouse Farmer’s Market


Terra Greenhouses has been holding a weekly farmer’s market every Saturday, allowing local businesses the chance to reach out to new customers.

One business benefitting from the market is Milton’s own Kettle Corn Boss, run by Herb Sickinger, a Sheridan Business grad.

“It’s a family business,” said Sickinger as his son Liam stood behind the mountain of bags of popcorn, looking after most of the sales.

Kettle Corn Boss provides customers with a variety of flavoured kettle corn. From the regular sweet ’n salty to apple pie, maple syrup, gingerbread and maple caramel, they all come in biodegradable bags.

Sickinger is also selling Barrie’s asparagus tortilla chips.

Other vendors in the Milton greenhouse offered alpaca wool and handmade soaps. Foods ranged from apple cider to meats and pastries.

Tiffany Drong runs Goats in Motion, and has recently added goat cheese to her list of products that range from goat meat to veal.

“I have over 200 goats of my own. It’s crazy,” said Drong. Her farm is in Troy, off of Highway 5, and transporting her cheeses was a bit of a challenge, but with several coolers filled with ice, Drong managed.

Across from Goats in Motion was Christy’s Gourmet Gifts. Bernie Mueller, Christy’s master chocolatier, stood behind a batch of samples of his renowned butter crunch toffee.

“All of my chocolate is imported from Belgium,” said Mueller, who added he works with top quality ingredients to get the best possible product.

An assortment of other chocolatey goodies was lined up next to Mueller, including some beer brittle with almonds.

Mueller’s wife, Christy started the business, but Bernie is the one running it now, he explained. They are located in Burlington.

Terra’s indoor farmer’s market will run every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. until April 5.
