Good Things Continue to Grow In Ontario
The weather was perfect, the farmers were present, and The Honourable Carol Mitchell Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs delivered a strong message: “Good Thinks Grow In Ontario!“
Yesterday Mushrooms Canada, along with 20 other Ontario commodity groups, celebrated the bounty of Ontario on the front lawn of Queen’s Park.
Government staff, passer-byers, and even the Minister of Agriculture perused through the mini-market and enjoyed samples of delicious Ontario foods including fresh mushrooms with dip, award winning meats from OIMP, creamy egg salad from the Egg Farmers of Ontario, and lovely apple blossoms from the Ontario Apple Growers.
Do you buy locally whenever you can? What is your favourite locally grown food?
