Ontario Buy Local Food Map

The week beginning on the first Monday in June each year is proclaimed as Local Food Week, as part of the province’s Local Food Act.

The purposes of this Act are as follows:

  1. To foster successful and resilient local food economies and systems throughout Ontario.
  2. To increase awareness of local food in Ontario, including the diversity of local food.
  3. To encourage the development of new markets for local food.

Cheers to the many people who are working hard year-round to bring an abundance of fresh, healthy Ontario-grown food to our plates!
