Buying local feels good. Whether it’s food, apparel or furniture, knowing the roots of a purchase can make one feel connected to the product in a way that just can’t happen at a supermarket.

To that end, on Dec. 1, the Artscape Wychwood Barns will host the first Canadian Artisan Tasting Fair. The event is the brainchild of Leslieville Cheese Market owner Michael Simpson. 

The Tasting Fair will gather together smaller-scale producers of high quality food, and give these merchants a platform to sell their goods to an eager audience. Featuring artisanal foods such as baked goods, charcuterie and craft beer from over 40 national vendors (like Toronto’s own Sanagan’s Meat Locker, Stratford’s Monforte Dairy and London’s Organic Works bakery), ticket holders may spend the day sampling the best Canadian cuisine has to offer, while being able to meet the brewmasters and chefs that created the products they are enjoying, for a unique, fulfilling, and filling tasting experience.

$35. Canadian Artisan Tasting Fair at Wychwood Barns, Dec. 1, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Tickets available online.
