Linda – of Linda J’s Market – has been cooking & baking for as long as she remembers. In fact, according to her mother she was in the kitchen making homemade orange juice by the age of two! Linda loves making people happy – something she is able to do through her delicious homemade baked goods and convenient prepared meals.
After raising three children and having a career in an unrelated field, Linda decided to focus on her love of baking and cooking. In 2005 she opened the Captains Walk Cafe in Pickering, ON down by the waterfront. The cafe was a warm and inviting place always filed with regular customers and tasty breakfast and lunch options. In 2008, Linda gave up the cafe and decided to focus on her catering and other opportunities. In 2012 she became a vendor at the Kinmount Famers Market, where she continues to have a booth and play an active role in the Farmers Market community.
At the Farmers Market (every Saturday from May-October) Linda sells an assorted variety of homemade baked goods, frozen prepared meals and fresh lunch specials. She also sells her prepared meals and baked goods throughout the year by special order and is available for catering.
