Lanark County is the Maple Syrup Capital of Ontario and there is no shortage of maple goodness here. We feature the local nectar in many of our restaurants and sell it in our stores. In March we would encourage you to trek further afield to Fulton’s Pancake House and Sugar Bush or Temple’s Sugar Bush. Both offer an authentic maple camp experience with oh so yummy pancakes and award winning syrup.

Located along the picturesque Ottawa Valley Rail Trail, Braumeister Brewing Co. is a Bavarian-inspired craft brewery coming soon!

The Carleton Place Farmer’s Market (every Saturday from late May to early October) is a foodie’s paradise. Fresh produce from local farmers, locally harvested meats, freshly baked pies and scones, and the bet little Indian kitchen in Lanark County make this little market a must stop.
