Easter Meal Ideas from Vince’s Market

Easter Meal Ideas

Easter weekend is one of the busiest times of the year at Vince’s Market as our customers come to us to select the very best quality ingredients to serve to their families for their traditional Good Friday and Easter Sunday meals. The various cultures and religions of our communities are reflected in the wide assortment of products requested.

We love Easter for the fact that the offering of food ranges from fish to turkey and from fruit to chocolate. One of our family’s favourite traditions is a big Easter Brunch. After completing our Easter morning egg hunt, we all take to the kitchen to put together a fantastic brunch that has a little bit for everyone. The reason we love brunch so much is that you can have your core breakfast items like eggs benedict or pancakes. Then you can also serve some fresh pasta and ham – and everyone can help! For those of you who have already subscribed to our blog and news, look for our favourite eggs benedict recipe in your email version this week.   To ensure you don’t miss out on future recipes, please take a moment to subscribe! You will find the signup box in the sidebar on the website, or you can click here!

Our table is often filled with a wonderful cheese platter of a soft Bries and strong Stilton served with mixed nuts and a platter of fresh figs, strawberries, cantaloupe and grapes. Smoked salmon and cream cheese served with capers, sliced red onions and lemon wedges on either crackers or bagels are also a favourite.

Freshly squeezed orange juice mimosas always are a great idea – just the OJ for the kids, but still served out of a champagne flute. Oranges are super sweet and juicy right now, so we are really excited for these this year.

The variety and selection is up to you! To us, nothing is better that a jam-packed table of everyone’s favourite brunch items together with laughter and love!

Just a reminder we are open all weekend. The holiday hours are as follows:

Good Friday 7am-6pm
Satuday 7am-8pm
Sunday 7am-5pm

Share your favourite Easter traditions. We’d love your feedback! Don’t forget to leave a link back to your own blog too if you have one, via the commentluv feature right here on the website.  Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and join in the conversation!

Happy Easter from all of us at Vince’s Market!


Homemade Easter Egg Fun

grocery store open Easter Growing up my family was always really big on decorating Easter eggs. My mother would always buy at least 2 cartons for me and my sisters to get creative and design them any way we liked. She always supplied us with tons of glitter, color and stickers to choose from, but my favorite was the tie dye eggs; they sure made my fingers really colorful after eating them.

Here is a summary of the seasonal produce available right now In our Vince’s Market stores.

We now have Ontario English Cucumbers (baby English and full English) and Ontario Rhubarb.  In the next week we expect to see the tomatoe varieties begin (Cluster & Hot House) followed by all bell pepper varieties (red, yellow, orange and green). Continue reading
