Herma’s News – Happy Easter! Let’s celebrate.
‘Is the spring coming?’ he said. ‘What is it like?’ … ‘It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine, and things pushing up and working under the earth…” — Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden
We wish you a Happy Easter!
Easter comes at such a hopeful time of year, and that optimism is much more pronounced this year as a possible solution to the pandemic is in sight.

We are CLOSED Good Friday, April 2nd
OPEN Saturday, April 3rd, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. – Easter Sunday, April 4th, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. – Easter Monday, April 5th, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Herma’s Signature Products
the Seafood Dazzler
Seafood Dazzler is a delightfully light and tasty dip for Easter entertaining. In addition to spreading on a cracker, crostini or tortilla chip, it may be used in English tea sandwiches with slices of cucumber or stuffed in cherry tomatoes. We also think it is delicious with grilled shrimp (sliced) and placed in a toasted brioche roll.
The Village Grocer
As you prepare for your Easter meal don’t forget that we have all sorts of potato side dishes, flattened chickens, smoked pork chops, Maple Sugar Ham, Soups, Quiche and more from the Village Grocer at Herma’s. As foods do sell out, please feel free to call 905-885-9250 to ensure the food you would like is still in stock.
We look forward to seeing you!
May hope and happiness fill your home at Easter.
From all of us at Herma’s, Have a Happy Easter!
