It’s a local artisan food fair called LAFF – or Locavore Artisan Food Fair. There are going to be some really wonderful food vendors from Ottawa and the surrounding area coming together for one day only to promote their products, let you do a little local Christmas shopping all while supporting a great cause – the Ottawa Good Food Box.

So come on down – buy some yummy local artisan Christmas gifts (even if that gift is just for you!) And meet some of the amazing local food vendors that make Ottawa such a unique and colourful culinary destination. Did I mention that admission is FREE?? Well it is.
