Want to explore even more of Alberta’s local food scene? Head out for one of the Forage on the Farm initiatives in the Camrose, Lethbridge or Strathmore regions for an unforgettable walk on the wild side. Led by fantastic herbalists and foragers, you’ll explore the wild edibles that make up the Alberta local foodscape, and then enjoy delectable dishes from local restaurants and producers. Be sure to check out the events calendar for other amazing local food experiences happening throughout the week as well.
Don’t forget to round out your Alberta on the Plate experience with a trip out of the city for Alberta Open Farm Days, August 17 to 18. Farms across Alberta will be opening their gates so that guests have an opportunity to experience the farm and understand where their food comes from. It is a backstage pass to meet the farmer, experience agri-tourism in Alberta, and taste local foods direct from the producer.
From the mountains to the prairies, the big cities to the small towns, get out and explore Alberta’s incredible local food scene while supporting the farmers and producers that are feeding Albertans day in and day out.
