Linda Cunningham from Wellington North represents Speers Quality Meats as one of the local food vendors who has returned for another season to the Shelburne Farmers’ Market at First and Owen Sound Streets in Shelburne.

Speers Quality Meats supplies local naturally raised Angus beef, chicken, lamb, pork, and turkey – all hormone and antibiotic free, as well as onsite BBQ – serving sausage on a bun every Thursday from 3-7 pm at the Market.

Cunningham received her training working with Speers Farms in Amaranth Township and is faithfully continuing the late Wayne Speers’ tradition with markets, home delivery and food service.

Linda, who has worked in food establishments for over 30 years, says she “deals only with small local farmers and producers that care about quality of life and quality of product.”

Although Linda says she cannot compete with grocery chain store special prices, her goal is that the customer will “always know where and how the meat was raised at an affordable price delivered to your door.”

She says, “Keeping our economy local is why we work hard to keep farmers’ markets. Farmers’ markets give everyone the opportunity to purchase fresh local goods, handmade items and provide an enjoyable relaxing shopping experience where they can meet, talk to, and question the vendors about their products.”

Speers Quality Meats can be reached at info@speersqualitymeats.ca or  226-820-1482.
