This year’s Royal Agricultural Winter Fair runs from November 1-10 at Exhibition Place in downtown Toronto. In the spirit of bringing the country to the city, the Ontario Fruit and Vegetable Growers’ Association (OFVGA) has organized a booth within the Farm to Table Discovery Zone, Hall B.
OFVGA’s program manager Dan Tukendorf explains that the exhibit includes a large market-style fresh fruit and vegetable display as well as three large video monitors showcasing various farming and packaging activities.
