Oxford Fresh Logo

Supporting local food is a lifestyle choice to be in tune with the seasons and the food our county has to offer.  Travel the back roads of Oxford County and sample award winning cheeses, fresh picked produce, the finest meats, syrups and grains and so much more. Meet the farmers, become a regular at the market and experience rural life in Oxford County.

Please note that due to COVID-19, the posted hours may not always be accurate. It's always best to call ahead if you plan to visit a business to get information on hours, services and policies. 

Oxford Fresh is a partnership between two groups that love to promote local, Oxford County Federation of Agriculture and Tourism Oxford.  Together, agriculture and tourism are putting Oxford County on the map.

 

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. 

Are you a local producer that is selling your goods at your farm?  You may be interested in the Oxford Fresh sign program, a website listing and being on the map. Learn more and apply.
