Supporting Farmers And Food Processors In St. Albert Area - McGuinty Government Supports Agri-Food Industry, Invests In Local Farmers
Ontario is helping to encourage more families in the St. Albert
area to buy local food.
"When we buy Ontario, everyone wins. It's good for our farmers,
the economy and the environment. With this initiative, we're strengthening
ties between communities, local farmers and food. This summer I
encourage everyone to visit their local farmers' market and bring
more of the good things that grow in Ontario home to their table."
"We are pleased to have helped the organizers add to the longstanding
St. Albert festival - it really showcases the best food in our communities,
and gives a boost to the local economy."
"The festival is important to the community because it's about
local food, and we are grateful for the funding provided by the
provincial government to make it bigger and better this year."
