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.
Don’t you feel like when a new trend comes along, there is suddenly a hundred of alike products and companies competing?
It’s only natural, that’s typically how markets grow. First there’s a niche, and if you are a few of the first, you have the first-mover advantage—though not for long because as competition increases, you’re suddenly one of many fish in the sea.
That’s how I feel about Farmers’ Markets now a days.
It seems that there is not enough summer to enjoy all that summer has to offer. There are so many events going on every weekend, and in my completely unbiased opinion, the best event is farmers markets.
With the business of the summer, I’m going to need to split myself in two! Or three.
This weekend was especially busy (and fun) because there was a farm crawl happening! You know like those pub crawls you go on and drink all day, yea except here you get to take pictures with farm animals and vegetables all day.
