We’re well into summertime, which is also primetime for locally grown and produced food. Local ingredients and amazing eating go hand in hand. That’s worth celebrating. And along with our friends and fans of local at Sobeys and Foodland, celebrate we will.

Join us on Friday. August 7th and Saturday, August 8th for Local Day at Sobeys Sydney River, East River Road in New Glasgow, Mumford Road in Halifax and the Foodlands in Chester and Annapolis Royal for a celebration of local food. Local Days is a great opportunity to learn about the food you eat, sample wonderful local products and meet the people who produce them. It’s also your chance to support local producers by filling your cart with local.

We’re adding even more colour to the celebrations this time around with a special focus on Nova Scotia wild blueberries and blueberry products. Did you know that the wild blueberry is Nova Scotia’s provincial berry? It’s also worth more to the provincial economy than any other fruit crop. And when it comes to Nova Scotia wild blueberries, there’s a magical time in August when we literally are the luckiest locals in the world. That’s because during the short August harvest season, we’re some of the only people in the world who can enjoy Nova Scotia wild blueberries fresh from the field.

At Local Days, 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 department. Sobeys in-store bakery turns out fresh-baked local goodness every day, plus they carry baked goods from other local producers. And as you shop throughout the store, you’ll find local down almost every aisle – great stuff like seafood, meats, maple products, honey, cheese, coffee, sauerkraut and so much more. And if you’re a fan of local wine, you’re in luck. Local Days also features tastings from Nova Scotia wine producers.

Whether you’re shopping for ingredients for your favourite recipe, or maybe looking to discover a new favourite local food, Local Days at Sobeys and Foodland is a great place to start. We hope to see you there.
