'Foodies' Walk in Centretown
Whalesbone on Kent, where the walk will start
This walk is an annual favourite, back for 2019! We will highlight some of the specialty food stores in our Centretown neighborhood on Gladstone Ave, between Kent & Percy. These stores focus on selling local, organic, and sustainable food. We love good food and we want to share our favorite stores in the neighborhood with you. Some details on the shops we will visit are given below.
You must sign up to attend this walk. The host stores would like to know the number of participants, so they can be ready to welcome everyone. Send email to Shiang Dai if you are planning to attend. (If the link doesn't connect to your email, you can right-click on the link to copy the email address). Registration will be accepted beginning April 30.
