Garlic lovers, farmers, chefs, craft brewers, artisans and scientists gather to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the Toronto Garlic Festival at a new location, Artscape Wychwood Barns, on Sunday, September 20.

Melissa Fenwick, Manager, Marketing and Community Engagement at Organics Live, said her team shares the same values as the festival. “In terms of promoting local agriculture and healthy food, we’re very much on the
same philosophic page as the Toronto Garlic Festival.”
Organics Live delivers certified organic, locally sourced and sustainably produced fruits and veggies for less than the cost of shopping retail.
Slow Cooked Ribs in Black Garlic Beer Sauce, Roasted Ontario Corn with Garlic and Basil Butter, and Homemade Roast Garlic Marshmallows, toasted on-the-spot, are just some of the many garlic-inspired dishes that will be
