Giveaway: Family 4-Pack to Philly Farm & Food Fest

2012 Philly Farm & Food Fest

A collaboration between Fair Food and PASA (Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture), Philly Farm & Food Fest will open Sunday, April 1 from 11:00 am – 4:00pm at the Pennsylvania Convention Center Annex Hall G. Philly Farm & Food Fest features over 100 regional farmers, food producers, artisanal food businesses and other providers of sustainable goods and services from across our region.

Philly Farm & Food Fest is part education, part celebration, and 100% delicious family fun. Exhibitors will be sampling and selling an amazing array of locally made products such as “zip code” honey, cheeses, cured meats, jams, small batch ice creams, organic flour, baked goods and more.

In addition, kid-friendly workshops like “Do Carrots Really Grow in Dirt?” sponsored by Whole Foods and the “ABC’s of Beekeeping” by Beekeepers Guild will entertain and educate little ones. Adults can participate in a variety of sessions aimed at educating their palates as well as minds like “Guided Tasting of Artisan Cheeses” hosted by Fair Food Farmstand and “Transforming Open Space to Sustainable Agriculture in Urban and Suburban Regions” by Green Space Alliance. There will also be an exclusive wholesale buyers’ reception from 4:30-6:00 p.m.

General admission tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Children 12 and under are free. Group discounts are available for advance purchase only on the website. Tickets are available at www.phillyfarmfest.org
