This week, June 1-7, 2020, is Ontario’s 7th annual Local Food Week!

As proclaimed in the province’s Local Food Act, the first week of June each year is Local Food Week in Ontario — a time to celebrate the abundance of fresh, healthy food that’s grown, produced and processed in Ontario, and all of the hard-working people who get that nutritious food to our plates.

It’s an important time as ever to support local producers and businesses, so join in the celebrations this week by buying, eating and drinking locally.

You can find local food & beverage products on the OntarioFresh website, and search for farmers’ markets near you that are open (some are currently selling online) at Farmers’ Market Ontario.

You can also find more information about local foods, including some great recipes, on the Foodland Ontario website.

Cheers to all the good things grown in Ontario.
