From Farm to Table

As it is located in the heart of the Canadian Shield, those unfamiliar with the area might not anticipate the strong farming community and farm-to-table culture in Thunder Bay. Discover the breadth of what is produced in the area by visiting local farms and farmer’s markets and then taste the delights at one of the many local eateries using locally-produced ingredients.

Begin your adventure at St. Paul Roastery for a cup of locally roasted, pour over coffee. Once sufficiently caffeinated, travel south to tour the Thunder Oak Cheese Farm and the Slate River Dairy and sample the various cheeses, milk and yogurt products being made right here.

Stop for lunch at AJ’s Trading Post. The restaurant features a menu of mouth-watering items created with primarily local ingredients. The variety store also offers many locally and regionally-made products for you to purchase and enjoy later.

Be sure to swing by the Chocolate Cow store to satisfy your sweet tooth and watch as the chocolate is shaped and formed.

On Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings, visit the Thunder Bay Country Market to visit dozens of farmers, producers, artisans and distributors of local products at the same time.

End your day with dinner at bight restaurant at Prince Arthur’s Landing. This fine, yet casual dining experience will offer you the chance to taste locally produced foods while basking in the views of the Thunder Bay waterfront.
