Manitoba’s Potato Week Returns for Fifth Year


Peak of the Market’s Potato Week in Manitoba is back for a fifth year running from Jan. 20 to 29, a Jan. 12 news release said.

“Manitoba potato growers work hard to ensure consumers have access to world-class product all year round,” Pamela Kolochuk, CEO of Peak of the Market Ltd. said in the release. “Potato Week celebrates their hard work and the creativity of chefs while encouraging people to eat local.”

The release noted there’s no fee for restaurants to partake in Potato Week. Peak of the Market will supply each restaurant taking part with 100 lbs of potatoes to use for the week.

“The past few years have been difficult for so many restaurants,” Kolochuk said. “We’re hoping Potato Week will help continue bringing diners back into restaurants and showcase just how versatile and delicious potatoes can be.”
