The latest edition of the Huron Perth Buy Local! Buy Fresh! 2012-2014 Map has just arrived and is now hitting shelves, markets and tourism locations across Huron and Perth counties.
The map, which is produced by the Huron Perth Farm to Table Network, lists over 100 farms and food retailers in Huron and Perth where consumers can find locally grown and produced goods, and includes businesses with products ranging from fruits and vegetables to meat and bread to cheese and coffee.
Many of the farms are open by chance or appointment – so be sure to call ahead regarding availability for the date you plan to visit and to be sure they have what you’re looking for.
Local producers and retailers listed on the fourth edition of the Buy Local! Buy Fresh! map can also be found online at www.huronperthfarmtotable.ca.
Huron Perth Farm to Table is a network of community organizations with shared concerns about access to local, healthy food and the overall vitality of agricultural-related activities in the two-county region.
Currently underway, the Opportunities Project works to create a sustainable food system and includes farmer training opportunities, market and infrastructure development as well as community engagement.
