Moms and dads are sometimes too busy to cook. Maple Leaf Market has your backs.

An affiliate of the Turning Stone Resort Casino, Maple Leaf Market is committed to "delivering convenience, without sacrificing quality." They offer a wide selection of Turning Stone Grab & Go foods. These items include salads, sandwiches, soups, and full, hot meals for busy families looking for a quick dinnertime fix. There are also great sides, baked goods and desserts.

We got to be the lucky taste-testers of the meals, cooked by the head chefs at The Turning Stone's award-winning restaurants. This week, Big John from the Tin Rooster (pictured below, far right) brought us some of his creations that are available at Maple Leaf Market. Single meals are $7.99 and under and family-sized meals are $15.00 and under.
