No, this isn’t an online dating service—although you just never know who you might meet when you shop local.

Get Fresh is a fantastic new free online guide to what is fresh, local and in season on Vancouver Island, Canada.

As a fan of slow living, I love the useful information provided on Get Fresh in the aim to connect eaters with growers, producers, suppliers and supporters of fresh and local foods. Did you know that artichoke, honey, kale, and cherries are just a few of the foods that are listed in the ‘what’s fresh now’ list?!

The site also lists local farmers markets, events and has a great get fresh blog filled with delicious recipes, including Raspberry Mint Infused Gin! Yummy!

With Get Fresh you needn’t get dirt under your fingers to enjoy local fresh food.

Bon appetit!
