We’re Celebrating Local

Some moments in life are simply indescribable. Winning that championship game as the underdog team. Or the heart-in-your-throat, weak-at-the-knees feeling that comes with saying ‘I love you’ for the first time. Some of life’s sweet moments are less monumental and dare we say, mundane. That first sip of coffee in the morning. Changing into sweatpants after a long hard day. Slipping into a steaming bath on a cold evening. The beauty of these moments is that we get to replay them… over and over and over again.

One of our favourite understated moments is the feeling of being at home.

After all, home is where the heart is. Yeah, yeah, we know. It’s a total cliche, but it’s one that’s stuck around for a reason. Vacation season is firmly behind us, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of reasons to celebrate the special things close to home.

Surrey’s food community is buzzing with growth and activity. From craft breweries, markets and u-pick farms, to fine-dining, multicultural cuisine and obscure hole-in-the-wall treasures, there are countless culinary discoveries waiting to be made. Our #TrueSurrey gallery showcases the multitude of treasures that make up Surrey’s food community.

Food With Thought is an initiative that was launched by Tourism Surrey in February 2014 aimed at increasing food tourism in the region and introducing both locals and visitors alike to Surrey’s thriving culinary scene. Behind every meal is a story. How was it made? Who made it? What’s at its heart? The Food With Thought website is a stage that tells these stories and showcases the community that comprises Surrey’s culinary scene.

Show us your celebration of all things local – from your farmers market haul to your date night dinner and everything in between. Be sure to use the hashtag #TrueSurrey when sharing your foodie photos to show off your Surrey pride!
