What is taste•real?
taste•real is Guelph and Wellington's brand for Local Food. When you see the taste•real logo, you know that you are experiencing food grown close to home and that you are also supporting local small businesses and farms. Find the taste real logo at farm gate stalls, farmers' markets, at restaurants and retail stores.
There are over 120 taste•real businesses in our community who are passionate about the way local food is grown, prepared and presented, and how real it tastes!
