Sample to your heart’s delight at the Canadian Artisan Tasting Fair

Every Toronto food event seems to ply the same formula: drop $10 on admission, spend hours browsing, and down a few expensive plates in a fit of foodie FOMO. The Canadian Artisan Tasting Fair offers something different. A $40 ticket to the locavore haven, back for a second year at Artscape Wychwood Barns, buys unlimited samples from more than 40 sustainable and small-scale provisioners. So there’s no need to choose between ethical meat makers Seeds to Sausage, Riverdale’s Dough Bakeshop and the prolific Leslieville Cheese Market (see a full list of vendors here). The menu is still under wraps, but if the fest is anything like last year’s, expect treats like crostini, handmade chocolate and a dairy’s worth of stinky, spectacular cheeses. Also included with admission: a tote, tea towel and $10 coupon toward any of the vendors’ goods—the perfect way to start your holiday shopping.

Nov. 30. $40. Artscape Wychwood Barns. 601 Christie St., 416-465-7143, tastingfair.ca.
