Directory points the way to fresh, local food

There’s a way to find fresh, local food anywhere in Prince Edward Island.

The 2018 edition of the Fresh Products Directory is available at www.peiflavours.ca or by phoning 1-866-PEIFARM. It can also be found at any of the province’s visitor information centres, liquor stores, Access PEI sites, or Department of Agriculture and Fisheries offices.

“Educating consumers about our Island food products and where they can get them is important for local producers,” said Charlottetown Farmers Market manager Bernie Plourde. “The Fresh Products Directory is a great way to showcase our great food products and support our local producers.”

It includes a map to allow for easy navigation from one fresh-food location to another. A “what’s in season” chart shows when products are available.

“The directory is an excellent user-friendly guide that promotes buying local and the abundance of high quality food products available right across our province,” Agriculture and Fisheries Minister Robert Henderson said. “It is one more way government can help support the innovative, hard-working producers who make us Canada’s Food Island.”
