    Philly Farm & Food Fest 2014 Returns April 13

    Philly Farm & Food Fest 2014Now that the polar vortex is over, we can enjoy the fruits of spring… and more importantly, the best locavore event in town.

    Philly Farm & Food Fest 2014

    The Philly Farm & Food Fest returns on Sunday, April 13, 2014 from 11 AM to 4 PM at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The third annual festival promises an abundance of local farms, food artisans, farm-to-table restaurants, local beer & spirits, sustainable businesses showcasing samplings and products. A joint effort between Fair Food and PASA, the Philly Farm & Food Fest is boasting a bigger and better event with over 100 vendors, doubling in size from previous years.

    On top of the samplings, workshops include DIY kitchen demos, kid-friendly workshops, expert speakers and more. New for 2014, the Local Libations Lounge will allow you to talk to the local spirit makers themselves. The Shellfish Salon will include a guided tasting by Sansom St. Oyster House owner Sam Mink. Plus, catch a sneak peek of local family-friendly movie Watermelon Magic.

    Carnivores can reserve their meat fills from Philly Cow Share to pickup at the Farm & Food Fest, even with some special promotions. On the opposite end of the spectrum, vegans will enjoy samplings from Vegan Commissary & Whole Food’s  vegan crostini and Char Nolan’s whole food, plant-based cooking demo.

    Regardless of your interest, local shoppers can connect directly with their local food producers, farmers and artisans. Co-founded by Ann Karlen, and Marilyn Anthony, this event emphasizes the wide selection and awesome quality of local food movement.

    Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door, with children 12 and under free. Buy your tickets online now.

      Does Philly Cow Share offer any more animals for pick up besides red meat. Like Philly Pig Share?
