Description of their products: At the market we sell delicious ice pops, lemonades, ices, and freezies! We squeeze, juice and puree all our own fruit and use only fresh herbs and zests for our HAND-MADE Ice Pops. That’s why they taste so spine-tinglingly good!! We use honey, maple syrup and pure cane sugar to sweeten, but only a pinch because the fruit has it’s own sweetness.

Information about the Company: "On a sunny Saturday in May 2011, I set up a ice pop stand in my Toronto neighbourhood, Roncesvalles, for our annual community yard sale. An overwhelming hit, Augie’s Ice Pops was born and was soon to become a favourite at Toronto Farmers’ Markets and Fine Food stores across the GTA and Ontario." Cultivating relationships with farmers and social agencies while using their local produce has been one of the great joys of Augie’s. Practices: We use sustainable practices (i.e. sourcing packaging) and pay competitive wages. We maintain relationships with local farmers using their fruits and herbs, and social agencies to develop partnerships that help everyone.
