Don’t Miss Flavours of Ottawa:  Holiday Food Markets

Ottawa foodies will not want to miss the second annual Flavours ofOttawa:Westboro Holiday Food Marketon Saturday, December 14th from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Westboro Masonic Hall located at 430 Churchill Ave. at Byron in Westboro and sponsored by Diane Allingham & Jennifer Stewart, neighbourhood real estate brokers at Royal LePage, Kitchenalia, Emulsify and Givopoly.

In addition, the first annual Flavours of Ottawa: New Edinburgh Stocking Stuffer Specialty Food Market will take place on Saturday December 21st from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at St. Bartholomew’s Church located at 125 McKay St. and sponsored by, brokers at Royal LePage.

A diverse group of 20 of Ottawa’s celebrated food artisans will sell their products, including cake pops, macarons, cookies, pies, tortières, teas, jams, chutneys, salsas, chocolates, honey, salad dressings and gluten- free baked goods. It’s a one-stop-shop for all your holiday entertaining and gift-giving needs. We are delighted to welcome some new vendors, including Tree Well (sap drinks), Bacannelle (Caribbean soul food), Heavenly Honey, Just Wing’it (BBQ spices), Island Spiced (hot sauces), Olivia Chocolatiers, Carolina’s Box of Goodness (artisan brownies) and Morsel (artisan caramels).

Be sure to come hungry so you can sample the gourmet products and for lunch have a delicious sweet potato curry and rice with cucumber yogurt, almonds and herbs served out of the Relish food truck.

Admission to the holiday food markets is free, but donations are welcome for the local food banks. “It is important for us to support a local organization in the community," explains Nicola Maule, the event organizer from connection360. "The local food banks fit the bill because it is natural for a group of food producers to give to an organization that feeds people in the area.”

This event is organized by the Ottawa Specialty Food Association (OSFA) founded in 2012. “We wanted to form an organization that supports local food creators,” explains Andrew Craig of Major Craig’s Chutney. “Our dream is for the OSFA to help mentor new food artisans, get better prices from suppliers and promote more established food artisans with events such as Flavours of Ottawa: Holiday Food Markets.”

So if you only make it out to one holiday fair this season, why not come and support Ottawa’s local artisan food vendors at  Flavours of Ottawa: Westboro and New Edinburgh Holiday Food Markets on December 14th and 21st? You will come away with delicious gourmet products that will tantalize the taste buds of your friends and family this holiday season.
