Grey Bruce comes to Taste of Toronto July 24-27 – win 2 free tickets!

A bevvy of local producers have teamed up to create a special Grey Bruce beverage experience at Taste of Toronto. This new event takes place at Fort York and features the best food and drink from across the city, the region and beyond.

Come visit the Grey Bruce Campesinas in booth E5 to enjoy a Campesina Cocktail. Made with Coffin Ridge Winery’s new Forbidden Cider, Meredith’s Ginger Lime Elixir and grilled Red Prince apples and lime wedges, this long, cool drink is inspired by the menu at the Casero taco bus and evokes the flavours of Mexico. 

Supporters in the booth include the Apple Pie Trail and the Grey Bruce Agriculture and Culinary Association.

For your chances to win a pair of tickets to the show, email and put “Taste of Toronto” in the subject. We will draw a winner at the end of the day Wednesday.

Raspberries are Here – Celebrate the Season with U-Picks and a Festival

U-pick farms across Grey and Bruce Counties are reporting that raspberries are ripe and ready for the picking.
The season was slow to start, but with the continued cool weather you can expect it to last for a while.

Enter “raspberries” in the search box to find U-picks nearest you. Make sure to call ahead to check on availability before you head out.

Insider tip: our sources say Mondays and Tuesdays are often great days to pick your own, since patches are often picked more heavily Thursdays through Saturdays for market sales.

If you’d like to celebrate all things raspberry, visit The Farmer’s Pantry just south of Clarksburg this Saturday July 19th for their annual Raspberry Festival.
