We’re gearing up for another year!
The Farm to Table Peterborough Downtown Culinary Tours will be operating from June until September – and trying to continue a streak of sold out events celebrating the shops and restaurants of the Downtown core. Tickets for the events will go on sale Thursday June 1st at 9am. All sales will be done through our online reservation system.
The weekly tours, which visit six downtown businesses each week, showcase local boutique food stores and downtown restaurants, highlighting small batch, artisan food production and local/seasonal cooking. They run from 1pm to roughly 4pm each Wednesday, from June to September, leaving from the Peterborough Downtown Farmers’ Market.
Each venue provides unique and delicious samples of their products – including some wine and beer samples.
The tours continue to gather momentum. And the annual buzz is back. Both patrons and businesses are eager for the season to kick off. We’ve already had countless people call and email to try and book. It would not be a huge surprise for dates to sell out in the first hours of ticket sales.
The Farm to Table Downtown Culinary Tours showcase local boutique food stores and downtown restaurants, highlighting small batch, artisan food production and local/seasonal cooking. Over the past five years, the tours have introduced hundreds of new shoppers and diners to local business owners – offering a unique direct marketing opportunity for chefs and proprietors to showcase their businesses. The tours have also become an exciting seasonal draw for locals and tourists alike to explore the downtown core “by foot and by fork.”
The tours are about shining the spotlight on local businesses and on the local farmers that supply them. It is economic development on a small scale that is yielding large results.
Special thanks go out to all of the businesses and business owners on the tour — as well as to our tourism and economic development partners, particularly the Peterborough DBIA who have been generous in helping us promote Peterborough’s downtown core.
