Food defines all cultures, and all regions. In Waterloo Region, it’s possible to meet our producers, see where their produce is grown, and savour those ingredients in dishes prepared by restaurants all in the same day. It’s part of our diverse and growing food scene. It’s a true farm to-table culture, one in which our cities and towns are located within minutes of some of the best agricultural land in Ontario.
Chefs and restaurants in Waterloo Region value the relationships they have developed with our local producers, and look forward to sharing the flavourful results of these partnerships with the groups who visit their establishments. Several local restaurants are part of Feast On, a movement for restaurants who believe local food matters.
This truly local farm-to-table experience also extends to craft beverages. Our craft brewers and distillers have created signature Waterloo Region beverages that focus on sourcing local ingredients. From local craft beers, to locally crafted gin and moonshine, Waterloo Region has a lot to raise its glass to! Tours and tastings can be arranged for groups wanting to experience this craft revolution first-hand.
