This makes for a uniquely local culinary tradition in our region, and results in the use of high quality, fresh ingredients and inspired recipes.
Our farmers markets run weekly from May through October in Acton and Georgetown, bringing local produce, craft, art, and goods to the heart of the community. Our wineries and breweries offer a rich array of flavour and experiences perfect for patio season and enjoying summer sun. Fan favourites such as Andrew’s Winery sources fruit straight from the farm, while the Furnace Room Brewery serves pints attached to local fables.
In Halton Hills, we pride ourselves on our small-town hospitality and big-city flavours. Find your new favourite restaurant tucked away in our beautiful, picturesque community.
