Celebrate Local Comfort Food at Sobeys & Foodland

Comfort food is defined as food that is satisfying because it is prepared in a simple or traditional way and reminds you of home, family, or friends. It makes you feel good. It takes you back, rekindles warm memories, and reminds you who you are and where you come from. It’s simple, honest and delicious. Local food shares many of the same connections, so it’s really no wonder that comfort food and local ingredients go hand in hand.

Comfort food works anytime, anywhere. And that’s worth celebrating. Join us Friday, March 27th for Local Day at Sobeys Cole Harbour, Antigonish, Windsor and Foodland locations in Stewiacke and Berwick for a celebration of local comfort food. Local Day is a great opportunity to learn about the food you eat, sample wonderful local products and meet the people who produce it. It’s also your chance to support local producers by filling your cart with local. And with a focus on comfort food, this Local Day promises to be to be extra delicious.

At Local Day, you’ll get a taste local at its best and discover just how many products are available year-round. We bet the variety might just surprise you. Especially when you explore beyond the produce, dairy and meat departments.
