Philly Farm & Food Fest

Philly Farm & Food Fest is thrilled to be bringing additional demonstrations, vendors and speakers to the Pennsylvania Convention Center Annex in April.  Now in its third successful year, Philly Farm & Food Fest has doubled in size with more local farms, food artisans, farm-to-table restaurants, local beer and spirits as well as loads of sustainable businesses. Include a healthy dose of DIY kitchen demos and kid-friendly workshops, featured speakers and industry leaders in nutrition, healthy lifestyle and sustainable entrepreneurship. Be prepared for a day filled with fun, food and information. Philadelphia area residents can shop, taste and enjoy this family-friendly event on Sunday, April 13, 2014 from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Pennsylvania Convention Center Annex.
 
A joint project of Fair Food and PASA (the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture), Philly Farm & Food Fest is a one-day only event that will connect shoppers with food artisans and producers and local farmers.  General admission tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Children 12 and under are free. Tickets are available at www.phillyfarmfest.org.
 
Over 100 vendors will be sampling and selling locally grown and produced foods – from fruit and veggies to specialty gluten free baked goods to meats, poultry and eggs to decadent desserts and organic ice cream. Presented by Whole Foods Market, Philly Farm & Food Fest also receives support from Door to Door Organics, Lancaster Farm Fresh Coop, Applegate Farms, Republic Bank, MidAtlantic Farm Credit, CoBank, The Merchants’ Fund, The Reinvestment Fund, and Kimberton Whole Foods.
 
This year’s Philly Farm & Food Fest will feature an exclusive Shellfish Salon, a guided tasting by Sam Mink, owner of the legendary Sansom St. Oyster House, and an expanded Local Libations Lounge with local spirits and an opportunity to learn from the makers themselves.  Get inspired at the Demo Kitchen, where farm-to-table chefs will create easy DIY dishes featuring local ingredients all available for purchase in Hall G.  Get ready for summer with a “sneak peek” of Watermelon Magic, a family friendly movie by renowned Philly filmmaker, Richard Hoffman. Top off all this fun with an informative and exciting panel discussion, “Great News About Good Food” led by nationally acclaimed hospitality consultant and food blogger Clark Wolf.
