Choosing fresh and delicious local food helps to create jobs and supports our economic growth in Ontario. It also builds a strong sense of community by supporting Ontario’s farmers and businesses. Every time you buy local, you make a positive impact.
Ontario farmers take pride in being good stewards of the land, helping to preserve it for future generations. Buying local also means your food comes from closer to home, and the closer, the fresher!
Adding nutritious Ontario foods fruits and vegetables to your diet can help contribute to a healthier lifestyle.
Finding locally grown, fresh, tasty food in Ontario is becoming easier all the time – and the diversity of the products available is incredible. All throughout the year, there is a constant supply of locally produced meats, eggs, dairy products and greenhouse vegetables available at grocery stores, farmers’ markets, farm retailers, restaurants and community events. With the arrival of spring and summer, the choices are even more plentiful as dozens of long-awaited fruits, vegetables and flowers come into season.
