Happy Local Feed Week! If it were up to me, every week would be local food week. With this special initiative coming to an end on June 13, it’s time I share some of my favourite locally sourced products that you can find in the GTA! Not only does supporting local benefit the environment, it also helps support our local economy. Although it looks like the pandemic if finally coming to an end (fingers crossed), local small businesses have taken a hit and we need to show our support. From fresh produce to chili miso, I’ve rounded up some of my local faves.

Here are some delicious local products you can find in the GTA
La Dee Da Twelve Veggie Tomato Sauce
I could eat this entire jar straight out of the fridge. It’s perfect for pasta, chili, eating hot or cold…the list could go on and on. You can find this sauce at Metro or on their website! Proudly made in Milton, ON.
Nerpy’s Jerk Marinade
Calling all spicy food lovers! I’ve had Nerpy’s on tofu and it was to die for. You can find this authentic jerk marinade at Metro or on their website. Proudly made in Ontario!
Mucci Farms Tomatoes
I’m not usually a huge tomato gal but I could honestly eat these by the handful! They’re super sweet, fresh and full of flavour. Get your hands on these Ontario-grown tomatoes at Metro!
Okazu Chili Miso
Okazu initially gained their following at farmer’s markets in Toronto and I’m not surprised that this bad boy grew in popularity! With an umami-rich flavour, this condiment is super versatile and delicious! You can find it at Metro or on their website!
Thirty Bench Winemaker’s Blend Riesling
Looking for an Ontario wine from the Niagara region? This Riesling is full of peach, pear and lemon flavours. Grab a bottle at your local LCBO. No better way to celebrate local food week than with some wine, right?
