  • Begin your Friday or Saturday adventure in Brantford with a visit to the Brantford Farmers’ Market in downtown Brantford. Established in 1848, the Brantford Farmers' Market is open year-round and offers an array of products, including: fresh local produce, a variety of meats and dairy products, delicious baked goods, seasonal plants and flowers and much more.
  • Next, travel to Strodes BBQ & Deli and visit their deli counter, which serves daily lunch specials, take-away comfort foods and warming soups that are perfect for fall. Take a taste of Brantford home with you by picking up some fresh cut meats, cured cheeses or try their sausages and appetizers that are made in-house.
  • Pick up dessert at Sweet Bakery, which is located just a couple doors down from Strodes BBQ & Deli. Pick up one of their delicious Pecan Squares, Butter Tarts or something special from their Fall Menu.
  • A short drive will bring you to Mohawk Park, where you can enjoy your lunch surrounded by fall colours in their picnic areas or pavilions. Mohawk Park is situated along the Grand River and offers trail access, scenic views, an inclusive playground and a disc golf course. Be on the lookout for Brantford’s Grand Exhibit, twelve to-scale reproductions of artwork from Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant’s permanent collection, one of which is located near the entrance to Mohawk Park.
  • Visit Brantford’s newest craft distillery, Manns Botanical Spirits, and cheers to your memorable trip to Brantford. Try their tasting flight, a signature cocktail or attend one of their classes or workshops.
