Good Things Continue to Grow In Ontario

The weather was perfect, the farmers were present, and The Honourable Carol Mitchell Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs delivered a strong message: "Good Thinks Grow In Ontario!"

Yesterday Mushrooms Canada, along with 20 other Ontario commodity groups, celebrated the bounty of Ontario on the front lawn of Queen's Park.

Government staff, passer-byers, and even the Minister of Agriculture perused through the mini-market and enjoyed samples of delicious Ontario foods including fresh mushrooms with dip, award winning meats from OIMP, creamy egg salad from the Egg Farmers of Ontario, and lovely apple blossoms from the Ontario Apple Growers.

Foodland Ontario also produced this simple cooking video, featuring Emily Richards, on how to prepare a delicious Chicken and Mushroom Strudel on Baby Spinach recipe. It features a selection of local ingredients from all areas of your grocery store.... just look for the Foodland Ontario logo!
