ALBION – The Orleans County Departments of Planning & Development and Tourism are in the process of developing the “Orleans County Culinary Guide” featuring a restaurant guide and an updated directory of local producers’ markets/retail outlets. Producers include fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy, botanicals and craft beverages/wineries.

The purpose of this brochure is to highlight Orleans County’s Farm to Table culture and act as a guide, for both visitors and residents, to local and fresh culinary options as well as food related special events. To be eligible for inclusion in the Producer’s Section, a roadside farm stand and/or farm market must be a part of your operation. The final product will display the location of the restaurant, farm stand/market as well as hours, contact information, and description of items being sold.

If your business is qualified for inclusion, please complete our registration form on our webpage at Submit the form appropriate to your business: Producers/Markets or Restaurants/Prepared Foods. The deadline to register to be included in this year’s guide is June 15, 2018.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions; contact information can be found below. Please share with any other producers you think may be eligible and interested in our Farm Producer/Culinary Directory Initiative.
