Hey friends! If you’re within driving distance of the Philadelphia region, you should mark your calendars for the second annual Philly Farm and Food Fest on Sunday, April 14. Organized by Fair Food and the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA), it’s an afternoon-long celebration of local farmers, cheese makers, coffee roasters, bakers, chocolatiers, and other folks engaged in sustainable food culture (click here for the complete list of 2013 participants).
There will be workshops, delicious samples, and many other opportunities to engage with the people that have made a career of working with and producing food. I’ll be leading a small batch canning workshop in the third time slot and will show off my favorite skillet and 4th burner pot method of canning (I’ll also have books for sale and will happily sign any copies you happen to bring with you).
Tickets are $15 if purchased in advance and $20 at the door. Kids under 12 are free, making this an event that will be fairly kind to the family budget. For those of you who want to taste some local brews while at the event can pick up a $30 ticket that will give you entry into the Libations Lounge.
It should be a fun day and I hope to see some of you there!
