The Farmer’s market of the 2009 St-Albert’s Curd Festival

Eastern Ontario is known for its beautiful scenery, its cheese-dairy, the warmth of its people and bountiful crops. But did you know that the MacIntosh apple was created in Eastern Ontario? That foie gras, Angus beef, lamb, duck and goat meat are also produced in Eastern Ontario? That’s why we created the Farmer’s market at Curd festival.
