Fall fairs are ingrained in Grey County's history. Most still celebrate the season the way it has been done for well over a century in rural Ontario, with livestock and trained animal shows; bake-offs; fruit, vegetable, flower and preserve contests; parades; quilt and art shows; farm equipment displays; BBQ dinners and live entertainment.
Looking for authentic farm-to-table experiences? Many of our restaurants serve seasonal local food with imagination and pride. Our list includes dine-in restaurants of all kinds, plus stores, markets and food trucks offering made-from-scratch prepared food to take away and enjoy.
Farmers' markets across Grey are up and running for the 2019 season. With the exception of Owen Sound (which is open year-round) most market are open from Victoria Day weekend or shortly after, just in time for the first local harvests, until Thanksgiving weekend.
June is around the corner, which means locally grown and raised food is everywhere in Grey! Farmers’ markets are a great way for visitors to discover lots of fresh, local foods in one place and to meet the people who grow, raise and make it.
