In the last year and a half, we’ve heard the phrases “support local” and “shop small” more than ever. It’s without a doubt that supporting our local entrepreneurs, service providers and farmers has been at the forefront of our purchasing decisions. If you’re like us, you’ve come to love discovering small businesses and the faces behind them.
This summer is the perfect time to eat what’s in season and shop local with the abundance of local food vendors we have access to in Brant. If you’re inspired to eat farm fresh this summer we recommend you check out these fantastic spots to purchase your produce:
