The Cloverbelt Local Food Co-op and La Place Rendez-Vous cordially invite you to its “Winter Farm to Fork” event.
This is our first such event in Rainy River District!
Please note the correct time for the event is 5-7 p.m. on Friday, March 23.
Call the Rendez-Vous at 274-9811 to reserve your spot as seating is limited.
“Farm to Fork” events are a great way to showcase the superb products produced by our local producers.
It also focuses your attention on the great talent of a local chef, as well as the commitment of a local business like La Place Rendez-Vous to buying local in support of local producers and our local economy.
Help make this win-win relationship a success!

The food was fantastic and the fellowship left everyone feeling like they would love to come back next year.
