Heightened appetites and refined organic food are the norm on an island packed with specialty food producers.

Many restaurants here subscribe to the "fresh and local" thinking popularized by the slow-food movement and books like The 100-Mile Diet.

Result: Menus and fresh sheets brim with Salt Spring produce, fruit, lamb, cheese, wine, bread, spices and other savories and sweets.

The Visitor Centre has a list of 70 island farms, nurseries and produce suppliers. The takeaway sheet includes a map and phone numbers for impromptu tours.

A few operators have their own on-site stores. Many sell fruit and produce in season at end-of-driveway farmgate stands. Still others are happy to welcome visitors by appointment. Also at the Visitor Centre is information about Island Gourmet Safaris and its escorted foodie tours of the island.
