This self-guided route highlights some of The County’s best restaurants, farms stands, food shops, wineries, breweries, cideries and more.
Pick up a growler of Loyalist Lager at Barley Days Brewery or a bottle of Three Dog Winery’s baco noir. Farm-to-table is truly a way of life in The County, so whether you decide to dine on chicken breast wrapped in apple wood smoked bacon at East & Main Bistro or sample The County Canteen’s charcuterie platter, you can count on savouring dishes made with fresh, local ingredients.
The County's beautiful landscapes aren't only the source of great food and drink, they serve as inspiration for an exciting community of artists. Continue your self-guided tour by exploring the studios and galleries on the Arts Trail. Pick up an elegant porcelain piece at Wellington Pottery or a painting at Cranston Gallery on Main. Meet the creators responsible for the wonderful artwork found throughout The County as you browse rustic barn studios and charming galleries.
