Maplewood Acres has been a vendor at the Old Strathcona Farmers Market since 1985. Marg and Doug Lyseng are the owners/operators of this small family run market garden and greenhouse. The greenhouses produce potted herbs, heirloom tomatoes (30 varieties), geraniums, hanging baskets, planters, many varieties of outdoor potted plants and a wide selection of bedding plants. These products are available at the Old Strathcona Farmers' Market beginning in March with the herbs. Also, Marg and Doug produce naturally grown vegetables on their farm. These veggies are grown without herbicides or pesticides, without chemical fertilizers and without using Genetically Modified seeds.
Some unusual vegetables produced include 8 varieties of lettuce, pointy-headed cabbage, mustard greens and arugula. Marg and Doug have a love for the land and are thankful that they have the opportunity to enjoy nature daily. They also feel very grateful to be vendors at the Old Strathcona Farmers' Market where many of their customers are friends.
