On Sunday I travelled to Kemptville with a few friends to sample the offerings of local chefs paired with vendors and farms at the annual MarketPlates event. The event celebrated the market season and showcased the tastes available in the North Grenville area. For a donation ($15 is suggested) to the Kemptville Kinsmen you're given a (non plastic!) plate, fork and passport to the tasting stations.

The outdoor event was victim to the cold, windy weather but it didn't stop the North Grenville community from celebrating harvest time. I enjoyed bites from Wyatt's Grill, The Branch Restaurant, Brewed Awakenings, Brigadoon, Catered Affairs, The Kemptville Pub, The Crusty Baker, The Landing and many more. Pictured are some of my favorites.
