Vince’s Market Asks – What’s for Dinner?

Butcher Uxbridge Newmarket Sharon Ontario

The last weekend of May is traditionally the time that we can know with confidence that the risk of frost in the mornings has disappeared, and flowers and plants will be safe for planting and decorating outside of our houses. That means this weekend is the busiest weekend of the year for gardening, lawn maintenance, and generally working outdoors on our homes. This in turn translates into last minute decision making on weekend dinners with the family. Before you know it, with the days continuing to be longer, you will be working outside and realize that it is already 5pm and you haven’t decided yet what to do for dinner.

In keeping with our “Hail to the BBQ – Savings Promotion”, we have have once again come up with full line up of everything that you may need for last minute meal preparation in our current flyer.

Victoria Day Weekend, the Unofficial Start to Summer!

victoria day Vince's MarketThe history of celebrating Victoria Day began with the reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901). May 24, Queen Victoria’s birthday, was declared a holiday by the Legislature of the Province of Canada in 1845. After Confederation, the Queen’s birthday was celebrated every year on May 24 unless that date was a Sunday, in which case a proclamation was issued providing for the celebration on May 25. After the death of Queen Victoria in 1901, an Act was passed by the Parliament of Canada establishing a legal holiday on May 24 in each year (or May 25 if May 24 fell on a Sunday) under the name Victoria Day. An amendment to the Statutes of Canada in 1952 established the celebration of Victoria Day on the Monday preceding May 25. With the recent birth of Princess Charlotte of Cambridge (Charlotte Elizabeth Diana), it is nice to remember the context in which we enjoy this holiday long weekend and the unofficial start to summer!
