If there’s one season that was made for foodies, it’s fall. There’s something about the arrival of autumn that inspires the stocking of shelves, the simmering of soups and the filling of freezers in anticipation of the long, cold winter ahead. Whether you’re looking for unique ingredients or the latest kitchen gadgets to coax the most flavour from your fall cooking frenzy, here are some of our favourite shops and stops in Hamilton Halton Brant.

  • 1

Must-try brands include locally roasted Domestique coffee, 50 Pesos fresh salsas, Dutchman’s Gold honey, Richardo’s hemp seed products and Giddy Yoyo chocolate.

We Look Forward To Seeing You Safely

As the COVID-19 situation in Ontario continues to change, a minute or two of extra planning is an important step in ensuring hiccup-free fall adventures. Follow the latest travel guidelines for your community and any communities you plan to visit. Check with the places you plan to go to in advance to see if reservations or activity bookings are required. On the day of your trip, do a quick check to verify the places on your agenda are open and serving visitors in the way you’re expecting.
