Giffen's Country Market
I've written about Giffen's Country Market before, but since then they have moved. They used to be on Highway 124, just outside of Nottawa. Now they are in the village of Glen Huron, off of Highway 124, about halfway between Singhampton and Creemore.
I was a bit confused when I stopped there, as the most obvious sign out front reads "Glen Huron Village Market". They do have a sign that says "Giffen's", but it faces the road directly and is low, easily hidden by parked cars.
In spite of their new location, they seem to have changed very little; it's the same mix of a sit-down café area, general store with an emphasis on local foods, and many of their own fruits and vegetables, including 17 types of apples, pears and plums. Now there's even a small post-office. Monday to Friday 7 am to 5 pm, Saturday 9 am to 5 pm, Sunday 10 am to 5 pm.
