There are already so many great things that individuals and organizations do every day to celebrate local food and beverages. The goal of Local Food Week is to share these ideas with each other and inspire even more celebrations. For ideas on how to participate visit www.loveONTfood.ca.

Durham Region is home to some of the most talented and innovative farmers in Canada. Many of the farms have been family owned and operated for generations. Farming is truly in the blood of Durham Region and we are proud to represent such a dynamic group of farmers.
Farmers’ Markets are unique in that they bring together communities every week, all for the love of farm fresh food!

Chefs and restaurants in Durham Region know the importance of supporting local farmers and farmers’ markets. The food not only tastes better, but buying from farms keeps money in the local economy.
