Vendor Spotlight: Kara’s Crepes
Where does your love of crepes come from, and how did you hone your skills?
I honed my skills apprenticing with a crepe vendor in Toronto who learned from the real deal in Paris. Crepes are an aesthetically pleasing food AND the range of contents is unlimited!
Where do you get the inspiration for your flavours?
My own sense of taste, imagination and trial and error guide me, and I find inspiration from cookbooks and other recipes, too.
What are your favourite types of food to cook at home?
My favourite types of foods to cook at home are mostly simple, organic plant based fare. e.g. incredible salads with nuts and olives, squash with slow roasted ginger tomatoes, pastas with the best olive oil and fresh herbs.
What do you like most about selling at farmers markets?
I love interacting with people, meeting new people, and seeing returning customers. I like people! (and being outside- except on very rainy cold days)
Why is supporting local important to you?
It is very important to me because it represents my values of organic, local, and it tastes better! Trading at a market brings me back to what feels like “right economics” and because I know how hard small farmers work.
