Savour Ottawa is an initiative spearheaded by Ottawa Tourism, Just Food and the City of Ottawa (Markets Management & Rural Affairs Branches). Savour Ottawa is a membership-based initiative, aiming to highlight local farmers, and provide official recognition of local businesses’ (restaurants, retailers, microprocessors) commitment to using local food and supporting local farmers.
