One of the best winter warmups ever invented: a bowl of piping hot soup. And since temps continue to dip this month - ‘tis the season to be freezin'- a soup festival couldn’t arrive at a better time.
Thankfully, you don’t need to travel afar to enjoy hearty homemade soup. Scarborough has its very own edition, taking place this month – Sunday, March 24,
Soupalicious is a celebration of the harvest - fresh local and seasonally grown produce made into delicious soups by local chefs, thanks to gardeners and farmers. This wonderful event is presented by the Plant • Grow • Share a Row program started by farmers that has grown to include multiple farmers, businesses and individuals in communities across the country who grow a row of plants and vegetables and dedicate the harvest to their local food bank and/or food agency for those in need.,
This fun, affordable community event is one the whole family can enjoy.
And to help keep the day waste-free, attendees are asked to bring their own spoons. As for the 4oz compostable cups and serviettes used on site, they’ll be sent to a nearby compost facility post-event.

Time: Noon-3pm, with sampling continuing until 4pm*
