First Fruits of Spring Festival 2008

Taste! Explore! Enjoy! Toronto residents are invited to taste and delight in our very own Ontario-grown strawberries and other local fare during the First Fruits of Spring Festival, taking place from June 12 to June 29, 2008.

Lovingly grown and harvested by local farmers and expertly prepared to delicious perfection by the city’s top chefs and other culinary experts, our local food is both a celebration of the harvest and a reminder of the envionmental and nutritional benefits of buying local versus imported food.
