In a region surrounded by nature and rich agricultural land, buying local is a way of life. Our neighbours are the farmers who grow and raise our food chefs prepare it for us and family run stores sell it to us to cook up in our own kitchens.
Centre Wellington is a founding partner of Taste Real, the award winning culinary tourism program promoting local food first!
