Tasting the Local Flavor in London, Ontario
Buy nuts, mushrooms, strawberries, sweet potatoes, garlic braids and bell peppers grown in surrounding fields at the Covent Garden Market. A local larder since 1845, this busy market in the core of the southwestern Ontario city brings the farmers' market outside in warmer weather. Artists also set up shop under the sun or in the busy building, selling blown glass, handcrafted clothing and homemade jewelry. Listen to a busker play music and watch another juggle as you wander the aisles. A regular calendar of events ensures that your grocery shopping will not be boring. Tap your toes alongside highland dancers, learn how to cook a curry or kiss the cod Newfoundland-style at the city's new East Coast Festival.
