The Lokal, a family-owned and operated local vendors’ market and eatery in Woodville, is expanding into Fenelon Falls.
The Neskovski family — Lorrie, Lou, and Brendan — have acquired Kawartha Lakes Winery, which offers 230 different artisan wines as well as supplies for the home vintner.
The Neskovskis also own and operates The LunchBox, a seasonal food truck business, and opened The Lokal Hub and Eatery and The Lokal Market in Woodville last year.
Brendan, who owned the restaurant Silver Spurs in Woodville over a decade ago, began working with his mom Lorrie in 2019.
“A lot of people don’t like the idea of mixing family with business,” he told kawarthaNOW when The Lokal opened in 2022. “I totally get it. However, mom and I are so similar and we’re both brutally honest with each other, which works out really well.”
Kawartha Lakes Winery will be rebranded as The Lokal Winery and is expected to open in a few weeks.
