Culinary Attractions

We're real foodies in Stratford! Not a surprise considering that Perth County has been cultivating food for the world for well over 100 years. The County's byways and country roads lead to a host of hidden culinary gems - from farm markets, cheese makers, bakeries, and vegetable growers to farms cultivating heritage breeds of all kinds.

Stratford loves food, especially the local producers and farmers' products. We even have two farmers' markets. Every Saturday morning it's the Stratford Farmers' Market and Sunday mornings it is the Slow Food Perth County Market in Market Square behind City Hall in downtown Stratford.

Learn more about our amazing producers, many of whom welcome the public to their farms to learn about the dynamic agricultural character and food culture that have transformed Perth County into a culinary and agri-tourism hotspot.
