The Ottawa River Institute and the Ottawa Valley Food Co-operative have collaborated on a newly published guide for Ottawa Valley food lovers! The Local Food Buying Guide for the Upper Ottawa Valley, is a very thorough guide to finding and buying delicious food products from local food producers and farmers across the Upper Ottawa Valley.
The 17 page guide includes listings for Ottawa Valley Food Co-operative Producer Members, Farmers’ Markets, Pick-Your-Own Farms, and Local Food Producers across the Upper Ottawa Valley. The listings include the name of the producer or farm, the products they sell, their farming practices, contact information, ways to purchase their products, times of operation, and in some cases directions to their location. The centerspread of the guide includes a map of the Valley, coded numerically so that people can easily find a Farmers Market, Pick-Your-Own farm, or Farm Gate Stand.
