Thanks for Voting!




Hey Toronto,

Thanks for voting for Fiesta Farms in the annual NOW’s Best of Toronto for 2013. Because of you we came first in two categories and are runners up in a third!

We love this city and we love our customers. We know our customers are engaged and informed about where there food comes from, which is why we sell so many local items and have a partnership with Local Food Plus. It is a great feeling to know that all the hard work and care that we put into the store doesn’t go unnoticed. Thanks again for voting!

Since we took the Best Fruit category, here’s a delicious recipe for a fruit that is at the peak of perfection right now – the delicious Ontario McIntosh apple:




Autumn Apple Cake


6 McIntosh apples
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
5 Tbsp brown sugar
2 3/4 cups flour, sifted
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup apple juice
2 1/2 tsp vanilla
4 eggs

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a tube cake pan (not to be confused with a bundt pan). Peel, core and chop apples into medium sized chunks. Toss with cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar and set aside.

Stir together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together oil, apple juice, sugar and vanilla. Mix wet ingredients into the dry ones, then add eggs, one at a time. Scrape down the bowl to ensure all ingredients are incorporated.

Pour half of batter into prepared pan. Spread half of apples over it. Pour the remaining batter over the apples and arrange the remaining apples on top. Bake for about 1 1/2 hours, or until a tester comes out clean. Cool completely before running knife between cake and pan, and unmolding onto a platter.
