Are you expecting company for Christmas or New Year’s? The shops and producers in your area have everything it takes to help you prepare a standout holiday meal.
There’s no denying it: local foods are always fresher and more flavourful than those that have travelled thousands of kilometres. During this festive time of year, find the ingredients you need to create a feast fit for royalty — not to mention unbeatable customer service — at your local bakery, butcher shop or farmers market.
Make your way to your local pastry shop to discover desserts to die for. Swing by your neighbourhood candy or chocolate shop to stock up on bite-sized sweets. Local specialty shops are full of the finest products: liqueurs, oils, marinades, jellies, pastries and many more epicurean delights. You’re sure to find a bit of everything to satisfy every palate.
