As diamonds are known for their uniqueness and lasting luminosity, so it is when a spectacular person, service or product lights up your day unexpectedly.

These diamonds are a ‘cut-above’ and have gone beyond the call of duty to provide a food experience like no other.

Please nominate your 5-star experience. Whether it is a fantastic product, fabulous restaurant, a server with uncommon grace and style, or a work of art, as long as it is food related, we will gladly share their story.

St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market we Salute you!

St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market in Ontario has a long history of connecting farmers and crafts people with consumers who are seeking high quality fresh, local produce and hand-made wares. It is Canada’s largest year-round market with 100’s of vendors who create the love of food community with a feast of sights, sounds, smells, and of course tastes.


It is a joy to visit this Waterloo County market that is surrounded by a large population of Old Order Mennonites who still work 100-acre farms set in some of the prettiest countryside in the province.
