Select Nova Scotia‘s Winter Fresh campaign aims to spotlight delicious, locally grown food that can be enjoyed year round. Beginning with IncrEDIBLE Community Suppers, events will run throughout February and March. There are also a number of food samplings planned around the province to allow Nova Scotians to taste the local food advantage.
“Whether it’s a local food-inspired meal at your community centre, going to a restaurant you’ve always wanted to try or stopping by a farmer’s market to gather ingredients for your own homemade creation, you can’t go wrong,” said Minister of Agriculture John MacDonell. “There’s an opportunity for everyone to enjoy delicious local food at this time of year.”
Cape Bretoners will have the opportunity this weekend to chow down on some local treats. At the Galloping Cows Farm Market in Port Hood a Local Flavour Food Tasting offers Creamy Carrot Soup Friday February 11 and Saturday February 12.
On Sunday, February 13 from 11:00am to 1:00pm the Bay St Lawrence Community Centre is hosting an IncrEDIBLE Community Brunch featuring mostly organic Cape Breton grown goods – eggs from a local producer, bacon, sausages from Horyl’s Superior Sausage, breads and baked goods using New Brunswick’s Speerville Flour, vegetables, maple syrup and honey from a local producer. Cape North Farmers Markets representatives will be present providing information to attendees. Brunch is $10 per person.
Developed by the province, Select Nova Scotia was created to forge partnerships with food producers, processors, retailers, food service and consumers and to promote the sale and consumption of Nova Scotia grown and produced food.
