With Open Farm Days happening, this is a busy weekend here in Strathcona County. If you’re looking for an easy option for dinner, or if you’re looking for something different to try out, then take-out might be the answer you’re looking for. Apostrophe 9 has an extensive menu for you to try out. One suggestion would be to place an order and turn it into a fancy picnic at any of the beautiful outdoor areas we have across the region. This restaurant is take-out only, so treat yourself to an unusual spot while enjoying eating it.
If Open Farm Days inspires you to support local producers when buying your food, then make sure to check out a local farmers market! There are several that take place across Strathcona County over several days, so it’s easy to support local. Another great thing about markets is that they also have artisans, so you can find everything from fresh produce to hand-made art and unique jewellery.
