This past weekend I had a chance to be part of Taste Real’s 13th annual Local Food Fest at the Ignatius Jesuit Centre in Guelph. I spent the whole day outside meeting local vendors, participating in workshops and indulging in some of the best tastes the Guelph region had to offer!
It was such a great and interactive event to attend and I am already looking forward to next year’s. In the meantime, here’s a little recap of the day in case you missed out on this amazing event.
If you are lucky, you may find this little but might berry at your farmers market. However, chances are, that you may have to travel out of your way to either the Sorauren Monday Market in Toronto or the Waterdown Saturday Market to get a taste of these rare berries.
So far I have only found one person that grows and sells them in the GTA and Hamilton area. Her name is Pat Kozowyk (Baba Link Farms) and she is the only farmer I know that grows the berry variety known as The Haskap.
