Go ahead; get take out tonight

›› Lauren Gaultier

I think we can all agree that these past ­couple months have been both ­challenging and insightful. We all have a new ­appreciation for hugging friends, the importance of washing our hands, and supporting local.

We are witnessing our favourite local businesses struggling to navigate these murky waters, trying to adapt their business models amidst uncertain futures. Here is a list of 24 Fernwood restaurants, ­bakeries, and cafés and their current ­operating ­info (at the time of writing this article). It is up to us to support these ­businesses and see them through this uncertainty. I ­challenge you to try out a different ­establishment each week and spend to support our micro-economy and to show Fernwood small ­businesses how much we appreciate them. We’re ­rooting for their success!
