Grand Taste Tour

  • Township Rd 484 Round Hill, Alberta Canada (map)

Taste Alberta and The 124 Grand Market are proud to once again present the Grand Taste Tour, an interactive educational experience that will celebrate and promote local food grown and raised in central Alberta. On July 12, 2015 participants will be engaged in guided food tours east of Edmonton city limits.

This year, the guided tour will involve different farm stops, some include Irvings Farm Fresh Pork, Wolf Willow Honey (honey found at Provisions by Duchess), Tofield Meat Packers and Breveliet Dairy Farm. Daniel Costa, owner and Chef of popular eateries Corso 32 and Bar Bricco along with his team, will be preparing a farm-to-fork late lunch, working with fresh ingredients from the partnering farms and produce from Taste Alberta & 124 Grand Market.

This event is open to everyone--adult and kid’s tickets available (13 and under).Tickets will include a tour of four farms, guided transportation to and from all of the farms, snacks along way and of course, a delicious lunch at Irvings Farm Fresh to end the event. Brittney Leblanc, Gastropost Community Manager with Postmedia, and several other fun food bloggers will be joining us this year. Bust out the summer hats and sunscreen, bring your friends and family, a picnic blanket and your sense of adventure!
