We are so lucky to live in Langley, where local is key to everyone. We love the summer and fall months for their delicious berries and beautiful vegetables, that we can access! Today the Langley Eats Local event is happening at the Langley Community Farmer’s Market. In order to celebrate eating and supporting local, we decided to highlight where you can eat locally right in your own backyard!
The brand new Trading Post Taphouse & Eatery in Fort Langley, is a strong believer in supporting local. If you have had the chance to visit, you can see the full list of local partners they use in their menu. Some of their Langley partners include, Blacksmith Bakery and Republica Roasters in Langley! So celebrate eating local with a cold brew and a mouth watering menu item. Your taste buds won’t be disappointed by any of your menu choices. Make sure to check them out on Instagram and Facebook for specials and new menu items!
Another great local café that is a strong believer in supporting local, is Watershed Arts Café located in the heart of Walnut Grove. This small but mighty café supports a ton of local farms and businesses in incorporating new menu items with seasonal ingredients. Some of their partners include, Laurica Farm, Milner Valley Cheese and Forest Farms in Langley. Make sure to stop and try the baked goods too! Check them out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, for more mouth watering menu items or events such as music nights with local musicians and art exhibits too!
Located on 62nd Ave right by the Langley overpass, lies one of Langley’s hidden gems! With Chef Sean Bone as their head chef, any item off the menu is guaranteed to make you a regular. Osso Lunchroom is a huge supporter of local. Using locally sourced ingredients and supporting other small businesses, Osso Lunchroom is a great addition to the eat local scene.
