If you're planning a Canada Day BBQ, here’s is what is in season from Ontario’s farmers:
Vegtables: Asparagus, green and yellow beans, Bok Choy, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, cherries, green onions, green peas, snow peas, radicchio, summer squash, spinach, and more. Fruit: apples, blueberries, peaches, plums, strawberries, and watermelon. Check the labels to make sure it’s local.
Don't forget to keep your beer local. Use our Craft Beer Map for your friendly neighbourhood brewery.
We’re allowed 10 people at outside gatherings but we still need to stay two metres apart.
The beaches and the parks will all be open tomorrow but be warned that they will be crowded.
The bars and patios of ByWard Market will also be open and Canada Day is usually their best day of the year. Tip your server extra well.
