Join the Ottawa Valley Food Co-op for the second Feast of the Farms tasting event as part of Pembroke’s Sno-Spree on Saturday, February 1, from 4–7pm, at the Knights of Columbus, 170 Ellis Avenue in Pembroke. Local food lovers will have a unique opportunity to meet and talk with local food producers as they prepare and serve up their favourite recipes in a varied tasting menu using local ingredients. Participants at this casual mix and mingle event will also have the opportunity to enjoy local craft beer and Ontario wines from the cash bar, which will complement the delicious local food.
This is an opportunity to sample a wide array of succulent appetizers, main courses, desserts and drinks, made by our producer-chefs using local lamb, rabbit, beef, chicken, pork and vegetables, and served as “small plate” tasters. Participants will be delighted to taste many different types of mouth-watering casseroles, roasts, curries, stews, soups, salads, pizza, fresh baked breads, desserts, preserves, pickles and relishes. There will be a selection of organic, gluten-free and vegetarian dishes, along with local beverages such as cider, tea and locally roasted organic coffee.
A limited number of tickets are available, at $30 per person, at the Pembroke Memorial Centre. Tickets can also be obtained by emailing Devorah Belinsky or contacting her by phone or text at 613–401–5887.
This event is made possible with financial assistance from the City of Pembroke, and support from the Ottawa River Institute.

The co-op is guided by the core values of healthy communities, environmental stewardship, social justice, and vibrant local economies, and facilitates the buying and selling of local food and artisanal products through an internet-based ordering system.
