Royal pairs up with Metro

The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair (RAWF) has announced a new feature for the November 1-10, 2019 edition of the 97-year old fair. Spotlight on Local Presented by Metro is a 7000+ square foot feature that brings together winners from this year’s Royal food competitions, entrepreneurs from Metro’s Locally Sourced program, and the best artisanal local food and beverage suppliers from across Ontario’s regional tourism destinations.


Royal patrons will be able to meet the amateur, semi-professional and professional makers, bakers and growers who represent the very best local food that Ontario has to offer. 


Champions Showcase will feature prize-winning products from the Royal’s Food Competitions with a different food product being featured each day, including three new categories. The best butter, butter tarts, cheese, honey, maple products, jams, jellies, pickles and preserves and for the first time ever, champion ice-cream, hot sauce, and jerky.


Ontario’s regional tourism destinations will provide an opportunity to experience the wineries, breweries, growers, producers, bakers and food innovators from areas all over Ontario. Featured products will include cheese curds, chocolate, haskap berry treats, bison, craft beers and ciders, pies, bannock, and cheesecakes. Attendees will also get to experience the culinary and agri-tourism destinations across the province including open-to-the-public farms, farm-to-table dining experiences and Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Ice-Wine Festival.
