Where to eat near Courtice

Price's may not be open yet - but if not, very soon, as they have a greenhouse and all manner of bedding plants and seeds, bulbs and sets available for gardeners. They also carry some things from other growers (I know they swap things with other farmstands, depending on who has early supplies of things) and of course, carry a bunch of preserves, eggs, cheese and some baked goods too, like Betty's pies and tarts from Cobourg. (a treat if you've never tried them!)

I second the suggestion to check out Price's on Hwy 2 on the east side of town, just past the zoo (my family has been buying veggies from the Prices for over 40 years now - ever since they started out with a picnic table on the lawn!) - definitely the best fresh corn in the area and it's picked fresh EVERY day. Archibald's is terrific too - we pick apples there every fall. Watson's Farm, on Hwy 2 on the west side of Bowmanville has a good farm market too, with both picked and pick your own berries and apples. For sushi, the best I've found in the area is Osaka at 46 Simcoe St. N. We took Japanese friends there and they thought it was very good too. There are also now weekend farmers markets - there is one in Newcastle in the arena parking lot that has a nice selection of local produce, honey etc. It's on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., June through October. It's not huge, but the selection is good. Oshawa apparently has a farmer's market on Fridays from 8 to 4 at 419 King W., but I've never been so don't know what it's like.
