BECOME A LOCAVORE
Whether you’re looking to pack a picnic for the park or sit down to a four-course meal, the local food scene has much to offer. Location gives Cobourg an advantage; we’re surrounded by farmland, orchards, rivers, lakes – and specialty producers that make eating local a taste adventure.
Consider this: Have you had a bison burger lately? Or ostrich steak? Other regional must-try items include salmon, trout and cheddar from a farmer-run cheese and butter co-op. The Proudly Northumberland Farm Gate Guide, available online, has all the details on businesses growing or serving local food. From farm to table has never been so easy!
And a Saturday morning farmer’s market behind Victoria Hall at the centre of town has the best in seasonal produce, and your favourite pie.
Where to eat? Historic inns offer fine dining and wine tastings. A former grist mill is now a popular bar and restaurant that overlooks a golf course. There are casual pubs and sports bars, fish and chip shops, tea rooms, and
family-run diners that have stood the test of time.
And, really, can you beat a patio for a relaxing dinner on a warm, breezy evening?
