Food and drink to go: A guide to local takeout options

Dec 16, 2020




The holidays are quickly approaching and while you may have a turkey dinner planned at home, we realize that cooking for two straight weeks sounds appealing to precisely no one. In addition, local food stores, restaurants and beverage producers need your support more than ever. So why not schedule a taco Tuesday, a brisket Wednesday, a charcuterie Thursday or a weekend in-home wine tasting? There’s a long list of delicious opportunities for takeout food and beverages across BruceGreySimcoe. Put away your oven mitts, do some online ordering, put your feet up and prepare to feast.

We’ve divided things up by the three counties: Bruce, Grey and Simcoe and highlighted a few food and drink offerings from each. Click the link for more info on Local Fare in BruceGreySimcoe or visit the Beverages page for more on our beer, wine and cider producers and local distilleries.
