Savour the Flavours of Minto

Savour in the Street – August 12

The Savour the Flavours event is focused on displaying local produce and chefs. There are many hidden gems in this small community that do not always get the recognition that they deserve, and this event provides a venue for them to show these talents.

With a growing interest in local cooking and techniques such as the 100 kilometer diet, this event should guide members of the community to supporting healthy local food options like this.  By simply doing more local shopping and supporting our neighbours, we can continue to strengthening Minto’s economy, resulting in new businesses and more diversity attracted to the area.
