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.
