Love Local MB 2016


Spoil your senses at Winnipeg’s 3rd Annual beer, wine and foodie event. The 3rd Annual LoveLocalMB Food and Beverage Event will be held on March 19, 2016 from 5 – 9pm at Canad Inns Polo Park. This terrific initiative began in 2014 and continues to grow, with over 500 attendees each year to sample, taste, purchase and celebrate food in Manitoba. And Fit Communications is excited about sponsoring this amazing event for the third year in a row.

LoveLocalMB was created by Peter Fehr of Gourmet Inspirations and Bessie Hatzitrifanos of Bessie’s Best Foods, local Winnipeg food entrepreneurs. They both create local, gourmet, handcrafted food products. This event will celebrate and promote over 30 Manitoba food and beverage artisans. Vendors at this year’s LoveLocalMB event include Perfect Pierogies, Flora and Farmer, Rawnata, Bothwell Cheese and many more. Farmery Brewery will be on deck to ensure everyone has a sip of their delicious Manitoba-made beer as well.

If you haven’t been to this event in year’s past, think indoor farmers’ market with a twist. The buzz in the room is great – it really gives Winnipegers a chance to listen to live music, taste and purchase local food products and socialize all under one roof. After a long winter, I always look forward to heading to this event – it is my window to spring! Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door, and include a free glass of wine. Tickets can be purchased online at

A portion of the proceeds from this event will go towards supporting Food Matters Manitoba’s Kids Cooking Club. This great initiative offers free, healthy foods cooking classes to children and youth across Winnipeg’s North End. For more information about Food Matters Manitoba, please see here –
