Chow across Canada

Hope this is the right place to post this. I'm doing a road trip across Canada for five weeks this summer. I'm starting in Banff and working my way East to PEI/Nova Scotia. I'll be traveling the southern route through Calgary, Winnipeg, Regina, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City into New Brunswick to PEI then Nova Scotia.

I've searched the boards for the major cities, but what I'm really looking for is where are the best places across Canada that showcase local foods, that highlight Canada's best eating opportunities. I'm interested in bakeries, cheese shops, wine, farmer's markets. I want to eat my way across Canada and get a sense of what that entails.

This may be too broad a question to get any useful responses, but I'd appreciate any thoughts people have.

  1. Hiya,

    What an exciting trip! The thing is: Canada's a vast country and this is an equally vast request. ;-)

    You'll get a much better response if you break down your question and post it on the appropriate regional boards, i.e. [Montreal & Quebec City -> Quebec board], [Calgary, Banff, Winnipeg, Regina -> Western Canada board], [Ottawa -> Ontario board], [Your Atlantic Canada cities - be specific about where in those provinces you're visiting! -> "Canada" (aka Atlantic Canada) board]

    Good luck and have a fantastic trip!
