City Harvest is a celebration of the bounty available from some of Halifax’s best independent local businesses. Bishop’s Cellar is proud original member of I Love Local Halifax and we are really excited for a weekend celebrating our neighbors and local business friends.
Showcasing amazing deals all over the city, entertainment for all ages and amazing food, including backdoor take-out from some of the best restaurants in the city (Chives is making their famous Seafood Chowder, da Maurizio will be offering take-out braised beef over polenta and our friends at Ratinaud will be serving up roast chicken and homemade potato chips takeout.. to name a few) you don’t want to miss this great weekend.
Both Saturday and Sunday we’ll be pouring some of our favorite local wines paired with cheese from farms around Nova Scotia. To bring it all together, we’ll also have a selection of breads from Boulangerie La Vendeene. Yum! Along with these great local wine and cheese pairings, we’ll also have specials deals on a number of wines in shop. Complete list can be found here
We encourage you stop by for a taste, and also to get out and see what our city has to offer. For complete listings of all the events, click here
