Some news from Farm to Table as we shake off our winter hibernation and get ready for the growing (and tour) season.
First of all we’d like to offer a very special shout-out to our good friends at the Peterborough DBIA. For the second year in a row, the DBIA has offered some very appreciated funding to cover costs for both printing and web services. And it’s not merely funding that they offer. The DBIA has been an integral part of helping us get the word out about the Downtown Peterborough Culinary Tours and the many great restaurants and shops that serve and sell local products and local/seasonal food. They’re truly a great resource for the downtown core.
We’d also love to thank all of the businesses that took part in the tours last year. It was an absolute pleasure to work with:
Peterborough Downtown Farmers’ Market – various vendors
Naked Chocolate (artisan chocolates)
Chasing the Cheese (Cheese Shop)
Brio Gusto Wine Bar and Restaurant
Rare Grill House
Black Honey Bakery
The Sapphire Room
Sam’s Place — The Best Dan Deli in Town
The Night Kitchen Pizza
The Pasta Shop
The Olde Stone Brewing Company
The Silver Bean
Community Butcher Shop
Two Dishes Cookshop
The Publican House
Electric City Bread Company
The Planet Bakery
Dr. J’s BBQ and Brews
The Ashburnham Ale House

We’re in the process of making the schedule for this coming summer. We plan on releasing the schedule in early May. Look for plenty of old favourites plus a few new surprises. A special note: We will be contacting gift certificate holders a week before the tour schedule is released to the general public. This will ensure that dates are available for these pre-paid spots. If you are a gift certificate holder, look for a call from us in early May.
