Choosing local gives you the unique opportunity to get to know your local food producers and make informed decisions about where your food comes from.  Supporting local food puts money back into the local economy and reduces your carbon footprint.  Better yet? Getting it fresh and nearby tastes delicious! Oxford is lucky enough to be located right in the heart of Ontario’s agriculture and produces everything from meat and fish to chocolate, honey, fresh fruits and vegetables, award winning cheese and more.
