Explore the city of Peterborough by foot and by fork and discover the culinary delights that area has to offer.
The Farm to Table Tasting Tours showcase local boutique food stores and downtown restaurants, highlighting small batch, artisan food production and local/seasonal cooking.
Tours run from 1pm to roughly 4:00pm each Wednesday, from May through October. $25 per person. Tours leave from the Peterborough Downtown Farmers’ Market.
The tour will have both entertainment and educational components.
Learn some tips about shopping locally, find out about our local food system, make contacts with local growers/producers, and hear what local chefs and businesses are doing to access local products.
While not all of the products and menu items will come from Peterborough and the surrounding areas, there will be emphasis on local meats, dairy, and produce, as well as on small-scale craft food production and preparation. With breweries and wine bars on our the tour, you’ll also be able to sample some wonderful beverages.
You may even learn a thing or two about why some local ingredients don’t make it to local tables — and the difficulties of navigating food systems in the 21st Century.

Peterborough Downtown Farmers’ Market
Naked Chocolate (artisan chocolates)
