Peak of the Market: providing locally grown vegetables year round

One of the issues people talk about is how does one get locally grown produce through the winter months. Peak of the Market is a 67 year old Manitoba organization selling 120 varieties of Manitoba grown vegetables through out the year across Canada and internationally.
They have excellent storage facilities and sell beets, cabbage, carrots, onions, parsnips, potatoes and shallots throughout the winter. Their mission statement is: to create a united team of growers and staff focused on exceptional quality and service. They also donate more than one million pounds of fresh vegetables annually to community-based food banks throughout Manitoba. Our part of Ontario lies within the plant hardiness zones of 5 and 4. Southern Manitoba lies in cooler zones 3 and 2. Farmers in Hastings County are working together to see if there are ways to provide a variety of vegetables though out the year.
