October 6 – 15: “Taste the Countryside”

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Back once again in the fall of 2022, “Taste the Countryside” is a delicious opportunity to explore the tastes and flavours of the townships of Waterloo Region through carefully curated and accessible tasting menus at rural restaurants.

During the ten-day event, more than a dozen rural food purveyors will serve prix fixe menu specials that highlight local products inspired by the autumn harvest.

The meals can be either dine-in or takeout. Full-service restaurants, coffee roasters and wood-fired pizza restaurants are participating, along with a wide range of others.

There’s something for everyone.

Taste the Countryside (#TastetheCountrySideWR) is brought to you by the Township of Woolwich, in partnership with Explore Waterloo Region, Township of Wellesley, Township of North Dumfries, Wilmot Township and Wellington-Waterloo Community Futures.

For more information, visit Explore Waterloo Region. You will find links to the participating food purveyors and their prix fixe menus.
