The first long weekend of the season is here and we couldn’t be more excited! Whether you’re heading north, taking it easy at home or planning a big BBQ in the city, Rowe Farms has everything you need for an awesome Victoria Day weekend that’s packed with delicious, high quality local food.
We know every family has their favourite meals for the cottage or the campsite, but we’ve made a list to inspire anyone who’s looking for long weekend meal ideas. We look forward to seeing you soon—please check our website or call your local store if you have questions about holiday hours at your nearest Rowe Farms retail location!
What to pack for the campground
Whether you’re setting up a tent in the woods, on a campsite by the lake or in your own backyard (we’ve seen families with little kids introduce camping this way!), you’re going to want to eat a good meal this weekend. Here are some products to fill your cooler with:
- Hot dogs (we have several varieties to choose from)
- Breakfast sausage to start the day right
- Pizza to cook over a wood fire
What to pack for the cottage
Cottages can be simple and rustic or have a fully-equipped kitchen, but in either case, using the BBQ is key. Here are a few products we recommend for the cottage:
- All of the burgers
- Your favourite Ontario beef steak
- Hot dogs and sausages
- Chicken breasts
- Bone-in pork chops
Backyard BBQ favourites
Anything goes for a long weekend BBQ—you can cook up some classic beef burgers and hot dogs, grilled chicken breasts or another summer favourite—but we’ve got a few things to add to that list.
- Bacon for topping those burgers
- A boneless roast for making pulled pork
- Turkey burgers
- Sweet paprika chicken wings
Finally, if your long weekend plans involve a low key picnic at a local park or conservation area, here’s what we recommend picking up in store.
- Chips and dips
- Deli meats for homemade sandwiches
- Delicious local cheese
- Farm fresh eggs for hard-boiled eggs or egg salad
No matter how you spend the long weekend, we hope you get to enjoy it with good friends, family and delicious local food. Happy Victoria Day, everyone! Remember, our online store is open 24/7 if you’d like to place an order over the holiday weekend.
