'Tis the Season
Indeed, but which season exactly?
Time continues to be a bit of a blur in these circumstances (we're measuring our weeks by delivery days - Wednesday and Friday!) And the weather itself offers few clues. Crocuses and snow are an odd combination!
One way of reliably determining what season you're in is by checking the cover of the latest edition of Food & Drink magazine at the LCBO. With the May long weekend ahead (!), it helps to double check and note that the brand new issue of F&D is the "Early Summer Issue". (click the pic to read online).
We're always excited by the arrival of a new issue - for great recipes and serving suggestions as well as hot tips on new wine releases, cocktails, producer profiles and much more. But we're especially excited for this issue because we're IN IT! In fact, the only Toronto shop mentioned as a source for non-alcohol supplies referenced in other parts of the magazine.
We can often tell when a particular ingredient has been mentioned in Food & Drink because all of a sudden we've got customers asking for it. This time we hope it just makes people curious about The Mercantile and keen to come visit. Social distancing rules still apply, of course, but other than that you're most welcome. There's lots to discover if you don't already know the store.
And, as we mentioned at the top, we are delivering on Wednesday and Friday afternoons between Bloor and King, Lansdowne and Runnymede (roughly speaking). Cut off time for orders is 1:00pm on the day. Call in your order at 416.531.7563 and pay by credit card over the phone for curb side pickup or delivery in that zone.
Happy May long weekend, everyone!
