An Insider's Guide to Waterloo Region

Interesting places on and off the beaten track

Summer Markets

St. Jacob's Farmers Market

Fresh local produce is abundant now at our local farmers markets in Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge. There are several farm stores in the region as well local farm products for sale at farm lanes. Foodlink Waterloo Region’s website provides up to date information on shopping from farmers in our area.

The Record featured an article a couple of weeks ago about a Kitchener teenager, Claire Matlock, who is following the 100 Mile Diet for 18 months. Her blog is inspiring as she writes about finding and preparing local foods. Do stop and check out Cooking with Claire and make an effort to buy some fresh local food this weekend.
