Halton Hills is a unique combination of two urban areas, historic hamlets and stunning rural landscapes all within commuting distance of Canada’s largest city.
One of the most unique and special parts about Halton Hills is that we are surrounded by lush agricultural land. Whether you are on foot or bike, our trails provide opportunities to discover Halton Hills’ natural areas. Our unique landscape provides visitors with the luxury of eating farm-to-table, which is a very special gift.
There are two weekly farmers’ markets from June through to the fall, unique specialty food shops that offer melt-in-your-mouth cheeses and local meats, farms where you can meet animals and pick a pumpkin and nurseries to bring a little bit of colour home with you.
Local flavours don’t stop at the farmers market! Our winery and brewery are local to the core. The fruit from Andrew’s Winery is grown straight on the farm and the Furnace Room Brewery is serving up pints attached to local fables. Enjoy these great beverages right from the source or in our restaurants. Dine at one of our local establishments to relax on the patio and catch up with old friends. Visit the local shops to find the perfect dish for your backyard bbq, holiday potluck or family reunion; and take a trip to a farm to meet the people behind the food.
We invite you to discover your new favourite dish in Halton Hills!
