There are only a few spots available.

The Mobile Miracle Market begins today, bringing healthy food to local residents.

Free locally sourced produce boxes are available for pick up in Wheatley and Merlin on Tuesdays, and in Thamesville, Bothwell, and Highgate on Wednesdays.

Here are the pickup times and locations:

  • Wheatley from 10:30-11:30 at Wheatley Baptist Church

Autumn doesn’t officially arrive until next Tuesday, but The Weather Network is out with their fall forecast.

In Ontario we can expect extended periods of pleasant fall weather through October and November, with above average temperatures expected in C-K.

September will be the most unsettled month with some systems moving through the area, but settling down once the calendar turns over to October. And those who love the snow will have to wait this year, instead of a quick transition to colder temperatures, The Weather Network predicts a more gentle downward trend towards more winter-like daytime highs. They don’t anticipate any significant snowfall events until the beginning of December.

Taco Bell Canada just debuted the brand’s first custom wine, called Jalapeño Noir.

They say it has “notes of wild strawberry, cherry, and beetroot.” And it pairs well with their new Toasted Cheesy Chalupa.

Bottles are available online for $25.
