St. Lawrence County has a rich agricultural heritage, which continues to embrace access to fresh food, new craft beverages and creative cuisine.
NEW St. Lawrence Wine Trail
The St. Lawrence Wine Trail was officially designated as the 18th wine trail in New York State in August 2014 by Governor Andrew Cuomo. The 80-mile trail, which includes Black Lake, Morristown, Ogdensburg, Canton, Potsdam, Stockholm and Brasher Falls, highlights stops at River Myst, High Peaks and Bella Brooke Wineries, along with the St. Lawrence Brewery and Kaneb Orchards Farm Cidery.

Good Food, Great Places!
There is always good food to be found when traveling, and St. Lawrence County has its share. Potsdam has an abundance of restaurants from American food to ethnic favorites such as Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Thai and Moroccan. Some of the best Italian restaurants can be found in Massena, and many Canadians make the trek across the bridge for dinner. In Ogdensburg you can find restaurants along the St. Lawrence that not only serve spectacular food, but the views at sunset are breathtaking. Of course pretty much each community has the great American small town diner, with home cooked specialties and desserts. So after a long day’s hike, paddle, or round of golf, head out for a great meal at one of St. Lawrence County's many dining options.
Farm to Table
As one of the top farming regions in NYS, it’s not hard to find farm fresh products. With farmers markets all across the county in towns and villages, you can find the freshest fruits and vegetables, artisanal cheese, and locally raised meat and poultry. You can find a farmers market schedule here. Don’t forget to buy your Maple Syrup locally too!
