2023 Taste of the Valley Vendor Applications

Celebrating all things grown, made and created within Renfrew County!

The Taste of the Valley delivers a positive experience and is a very popular event for vendors, residents and visitors to Renfrew County. The original concept for the Taste of the Valley was to promote and support local food producers in the Ottawa Valley. Over the years, the events have evolved to encourage an expanded focus on the notion of “taste” with the celebration of local food, products, art and culture.

Taste of the Valley is an indoor/outdoor market event that celebrates all things grown, made and created within Renfrew County! 

Originally introduced in October 2006, the event is now held four times per year between August and October in a select number of communities across Renfrew County. In November 2022, the first-ever Holiday edition was introduced with great success. Taste of the Valley events promote and support local food producers, growers and artisans in the Ottawa Valley and encourage "Taste of Place" in celebration of local food, products, art and culture.
