Christmas A story Let them eat local: sourcing holiday

Whether you’re hosting an intimate gathering for family and friends or a cock- tail party for colleagues, you want to offer your guests the best. Look to local produ- cers who put hard work and passion into creating their breads, beers, chocolates and other delicacies that will undoubtedly impress those who try them. A responsible choice Because the products don’t have to travel vast distances to reach your kitchen, when you buy local, you end up lowering your carbon footprint. Additionally, by eating and drinking locally, you encourage your region’s econ- omy. Instead of giving money to large cor- porations, you’ll help your neighbours make a living and foster employment in your area. But altruism aside, one of the best rea- sons to buy food items locally is that they’re fresher — and tastier! — than those bought at the grocery store. For these reasons, and so many more, serve and gift delicious eats and treats that were made close to home.

delicacies your guests will love Good cheese, excellent wine and deca- dent sweets. The holidays are the per- fect time to indulge your inner epicur- ean. To please your senses — and those of your favourite foodies — plate local products.

Holiday markets: the best place to find meaningful gifts If you want to add some magic to the holidays this year, consider buying unique, handmade gifts from local art- ists and artisans. Instead of heading to the mall to do your Christmas shopping, visit your town’s holiday markets, fairs and pop-up shops. Whether you’re looking for jewelry, art, toys, textiles, clothes, beauty products, dishes or decorations, you’ll find it. Shop- ping for everyone on your list is easy and affordable. Meet talented community members Holiday fairs give you the opportunity to meet talented artists and artisans who will no doubt inspire you with not only their wares but also their aptitude. Take the time to talk to them and ask about their

overall process and specific techniques they use. They’ll be happy to share their passion with you. Personalize your holiday gifts Artists and artisans are typically able to personalize items you buy from them. You could ask an embroiderer to add your grandmother’s initials to handmade hand- kerchiefs, or request that a wood turner paint your nephew’s name on the spinning top you buy. Gifts that are personalized tend to become cherished keepsakes and make wonderful holiday surprises.
