to improve communication between growers, microprocessors,
accommodation stakeholders, restaurants, chefs and the retail sector
Having worked in a number of those fields I know how important it is to have a broad inclusive approach!
The events page clearly listed all the farmers markets in the area and I enjoyed the Gravenhurst Farmers market both Wednesdays that I was here (and last year too!) || Farmers Market || In Season, In Muskoka, In August ||

Another day I headed just down the highway to Muskoka Meats and the 100 Mile Store where I met the very cute Reed Curry, a passionate supporter of local endeavours, trained chef and (I discovered) a recent addition to the Savour Muskoka Board of Directors. He again pointed out the map and circled some great destinations on it for me! Thanks :) The store itself was great, easily accessible just off the highway and with all sorts of fresh & sustainable local meats, produce and treats. I was surprised to see quite a number of Toronto and Niagara brands but they were still all great regional products.
Some other Savour Muskoka partners I checked out:
North Restaurant, Johnston's Cranberry / Muskoka Lake Winery, the Muskoka Beer Festival, Muskoka Herb Farm
