FARM FRESH FARE:

What do you get when you ask local, talented restaurant chefs to prepare a dish containing fresh, Ontario-grown ingredients? Find out for yourself by sampling gourmet dishes (and desserts, too!) at Farm Fresh Fare, presented by Toyota Canada Inc. Now in its fourth year, the venue’s tantalizing aromas always attract a crowd. We encourage you to go for seconds: Part of the proceeds from Farm Fresh Fare ticket sales go to Evergreen’s Children’s Food program and Slow Food Toronto’s Learning Garden programs.

Farm Fresh Fare raises the awareness of the environmental and health benefits of choosing fresh, sustainable, Ontario-grown farm foods all year round. By fostering partnerships between local farmers and talented restaurant chefs, Farm Fresh Fare highlights the versatility and variety of local foods available this season.
