Come to Stratford early and stay late! Construction delays may be significant in summer 2019 so be sure not to miss out on any fun!

Hwy 7: Adding a round-about at Line 26 between Stratford and St. Marys/London/401 W

Daytime delays may be possible during August, however, all roads and the round-about are open.

Hwy 6 to Embro/401: Replacement of large culvert Aug-Nov

Expect delays but road will not be closed. Hwy 7 detour is suggested as above, if there is an overlap.

Hwy 8 between Stratford and Shakespeare: In progress

Beginning in early June, stretches of this road between the west end of Shakespeare and the east end of Stratford will be reduced on weekdays to a single lane, with flag people controlling traffic in both directions. Delays may be lengthy, so please allow additional time for your trip. (Both lanes are expected to be open on evenings and weekends.)

Don’t miss the fun due to construction delays!

Top 5 Stratford Series

Meet Erin - Top 5 Stratford Series - Charcuterie

Posted under Top 5 Stratford Series on Oct 8, 2018

charcuterie at keystone alley

Meet Erin. Erin McIntosh and her family are farmers working with grass-fed animals and nature to produce some of the tastiest and most nutritious meat and eggs available. Erin selected chefs and restaurants who not only support local farmers, but make almost everything in house which comes through in the flavours. Each truly offers a unique taste experience! Look for Erin every Sunday at the Slow Food Market in Stratford. Coming soon, McIntosh Farms will be opening a butcher shop in Listowel, Ontario.

Erin loves the Ploughman’s Board at Keystone Alley. Filled with the distinctive flavours of artisanal charcuterie, house-made bread, cheese, biltong and pickles, it reflects Erin's local philosophy and commitment to quality.

mercer charcuterie

Erin likes Chef Ryan's Mercer Hall twist on the traditional charcuterie board, the popular house smoked salmon. Served with C'est Bon chevre, fresh dill and seasoning, house-made rye crackers, pickled red onion and fried capers, this is a perennial favourite!

bruce charcuterie

Erin looks forward to dining The Bruce. Chef Arron's house-made charcuterie board complemented with pickles, mustard and tasty grilled bread never disappoints. It is even more delicious over good conversation with a friend in the bright welcoming setting.

revival house charcuterie

Erin enjoys an impromptu fall meet up with friends. Sharing the Antipasto Board Revival House combines the local flavours of Stratford's Monforte cheese and charcuterie with the Italian zest of marinated olives and roasted peppers.

mill stone charcuterie

"Globally inspired and locally sourced" describes the Millwright Board The Mill Stone and Erin's appreciation of the great flavours of in-house cured meat and local cheese. She loves the variety of pickles and ferments, spreads and grilled bread that complete the board.
