Eat Local All Year-Round

There may be several reasons to buy local products: to help protect the environment; to support producers in our region; to enjoy better flavour and higher nutritional value. In fact, did you know that in North America, food travels an average of 2000 to 2500 kilometers before arriving on our plates? And, that in order not to be too damaged in the transport, some fruits and vegetables coming from afar are harvested before they’re ripe, making them less nutritious?

To help you choose local products year round, we have divided this page into 4 parts (one for each season).

Tastefully yours,

Spring

Good weather is back! It’s also the return of fruit and vegetable laden grocery baskets. Get inspired by our top 10 Springtime recipes.

Summer

Cooking is easy in summer: there’s a huge selection of fresh food that we can toss into a salad or grill on the BBQ.

Fall

Fall is the season to make preserves of local fruits and vegetables for the rest of the year. Read our articles to discover how. And don’t forget to go for a walk in the orchards.

Winter

Fresh, local food in Winter…really? It’s definitely possible!
