Delicious and Locally-Grown Food Awaits Your Plate

Located in the heart of Southwestern Ontario, Oxford County is located on some of the province's richest farmland. Just 5.5 hours from Ottawa and 1.5 hours from downtown Toronto, Oxford is an amazing place to spend a getaway enjoying food fresh from the land. Our biggest city (Woodstock) is located right where Highways 401 and 403 meet so it's super easy to get to and acts as a gateway to the rest of the county. Want to know more? Check out our about page. 

It's all about getting ingredients right from the source. Whether you're checking out a farm market or discovering your fav new dish at one of our restaurants, there are so many ways to enjoy our vibrant food scene.

Delicious and fresh local food is the beating heart of Oxford's agricultural heritage.  Enjoy strolling our farmers' markets for flavourful finds, sip on a new batch of freshly brewed craft beer and take in what it means to be eating in tune with the seasons.
