Is your grocery shopping routine feeling a little too routine? Shake things up this fall by transforming your weekly shop into a scenic road trip with a tasty purpose. In addition to sourcing the freshest Ontario flavours for all your favourite fall dishes, you can find hands-on fun at pick-your-own produce stands and enjoy some strategic sipping to discover new local beers, wines and ciders. Here are some ideas for a fall grocery galivant in Hamilton Halton Brant.

In The Hamilton and Stoney Creek Area

Stock up on fresh fruits, vegetables, delicious baked goods and gourmet pantry items at Stoney Creek’s Punch Bowl Market and Bakery.

Head to Murphy’s Country Produce through the end of October to pick a wide range of produce, and while you’re there, grab some sunflowers too.

West Avenue Cider House offers traditional country flavours as well as more innovative, barrel-aged and cask-conditioned ciders. Six rotating taps mean there is always something new to sample. If you’d like to turn your grocery trip into an overnight getaway, consider booking their on-site vacation rental, Somerset Cottage.
