The Good Food Tour in Almonte
Almonte is a scenic town with a great history and greater future! We've had five movies shot here recently and there will likely be more. Several heritage buildings have been refurbished into condos and thriving businesses. There's a seasonal farmer's market and passionate farm and naturalist organizations. Many artists, musicians and skilled craftspeople call Almonte and area (Mississippi Mills) their home. We have antique shops, book, food, specialty and gift stores and first-class restaurants and cafés, a busy library and museums, along with our schools and a top-notch hospital. Dr. James Naismith, the inventor of basketball, was born in Almonte and because of this connection there are numerous related events. There's also much more to share with several very popular festivals like CeltFest and Light Up The Light, which have attendance in the thousands! almonte.com
