The best resource for great local shopping!

There is amazing stuff close by – local artisans and independently owned retailers, cool things to do and eat, and great charities to support. It’s good for the economy, the environment and the soul.

The Harvest is Here

Have you had any local strawberries yet??  They taste SO good.  And that colour - you can only get it if they are picked ripe (therefore not shipped too far).  We have a tendency to go a little crazy with seasonal stuff in our house. I think the kids were sort of glad when the asparagus season ended, although I still fondly miss it.  We never get enough strawberries though.  I like them as part of a savoury salad as well as for dessert, and breakfast.   However you enjoy them, go grab some today and enjoy, cuz they won't last long.

Just FYI here are a couple of good sites to find all the locally grown food you could want this Harvest Ontario is the largest and most comprehensive source for local including on-farm markets, pick-your-own, farmers' markets, farmgate honey producers, local meats, wineries, craft breweries, fairs and much more. 
growing season. 
And Pick your has an at-a-glance page to find local farms to visit and harvest yourself for lots of fresh things (including strawberries).
