Experience the best local food and farms on Halton’s Pumpkins to Pastries Trail

Release Date: Sep 14, 2017

Next week, Halton Region is launching its annual Pumpkins to Pastries Trail, running from September 18 to October 31, 2017. Residents and visitors to the region can experience local food, products and events, and explore the connections between farms, markets, restaurants and shops in Halton. The Pumpkins to Pastries Trail is not only a fun experience for residents and tourists, but it also supports the vibrant small business community here in Halton.

“The Pumpkins to Pastries Trail allows residents and visitors to explore the best of the harvest season in Halton while supporting local businesses,” said Halton Regional Chair Gary Carr. “Through programs like the Pumpkins to Pastries Trail, Halton offers a venue to help promote small, local business and a way for these businesses to showcase what they do best.”

The P2P Trail also helps to promote how agriculture is thriving in Halton and is a great opportunity for residents and visitors to get a taste of the harvest season by exploring the region’s local offerings, meeting the people and seeing the places that offer and produce local food. An exciting new feature this year is the ability to experience the trail through our OneHalton App! Residents and tourists are invited to download the app and use it to find participating vendors and map locations. You can also find coupons from your favourite shops and restaurants.

Back for another year is the Pumpkins to Pastries Trail Selfie Contest. Simply snap a selfie on the Trail and post the picture on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #p2ptrail to enter for a chance to win a prize basket of fantastic local offerings. Prizes will be awarded weekly and your picture could be featured on Halton’s trail gallery. Visit halton.ca/p2ptrail for contest rules and to view the gallery.
