Posts Tagged ‘We ♥ LocalAwards’

We all have our favourite local food producers and restaurants and I think it’s time to show our support! There are two award programs happening right now:

We ♥ LocalAwards

WeHeartLocalAwardsFor the third year, these people’s choice awards will highlight the most popular food and agriculture businesses and organizations across the province. Your participation will demonstrate your support of the local economy, spread the word about why local is better, and tell your favourites — in a very concrete way — how important they are to you and the community.

Anyone living in BC can nominate and vote for their favourites in the following 15 delicious categories:

  • Favourite Farmers’ Market
  • Favourite Store to Buy Local
  • Favourite Local Meat or Poultry Supplier
  • Favourite Local Seafood Supplier
  • Favourite Local Cheese Maker
  • Favourite Local Sweet Treat
  • Favourite Local Advocate
  • Favourite Local Winery
  • Favourite Local Brewery
  • Favourite Local Food Truck
  • Favourite Local U-Pick Farm
  • Favourite Local Orchard/Fruit Supplier
  • Favourite Local Restaurant or Chef
  • Favourite Local Florist or Nursery
  • Favourite Local Greenhouse or Veggie Grower

How does We ♥ Local Awards work?

  • Nominations open from August 17 to September 6
  • Vote between September 7-12
  • Top 5 category favourites quick-fire voting September 13-14
  • Winners revealed on September 15

And you could be a potential winner, too! Nominating and voting for your local BC favourites also enters you into weekly draws for a chance to win one of five $100 gift cards to your local BC VQA store. Plus, you’ll be automatically entered in the Grand Prize draw for a three-night stay at Taku Resort and Marina along with your choice of a cooking course for two, valued at $1,800.
