Ontario’s 6th annual Local Food Week is here, taking place this year from June 3rd to June 9th!

It’s a week to celebrate our local farmers and all of the good, delicious, nutritious things that are grown, produced and processed in Ontario.

To celebrate Local Food Week, be sure to buy, eat and drink local! You can start by finding a farmers’ market and local food near you using OntarioFresh.ca or Ontario Farm Fresh.
