Taste Local!

BruceGreySimcoe…always delicious!  Dishes made from local products appear on many of our restaurants’ menus and may vary from season to season. Some of our farmers’ markets and farm stores are open year-round, so stop in to pick up fresh baked bread and treats, locally produced milk and cheeses, fresh fish, beef, poultry and exotic game.  The fruits of the harvest are available now too – jams, jellies, relishes and local honey make great additions to the kitchen pantry and make the perfect hostess gift. 
Plan your culinary experience by visiting Eat Local Grey Bruce and Simcoe County Farm Fresh to source out local producers and suppliers, as well as restaurants and bed and breakfast establishments that include local ingredients in their dishes.  Hours may vary during the winter season, so be sure to call ahead.
