Discover the impact food and food culture have had on the charming city of Stratford, Ontario. Acclaimed events like the Savour Stratford Perth County Culinary Festival have put Stratford on the map as a destination for foodies. How did this relatively small city develop such a significant culinary reputation? The story stretches back to the very roots of Stratford; food and agriculture have always been a critical element of the city's cultural milieu. In fact the deed for Stratford City Hall includes a condition that its operations must always accommodate a farmers market. Generations of Stratford residents have nurtured the area's food heritage, and a nationally renowned theater scene have made it possible for the small city to support dozens of world-class restaurants.
