Earlier this summer, around the time that I launched Local Lux, I decided to join the Twitter-verse. Due to my love of food and travel, I follow world-renowned Chef Michael Smith. Not too long ago he tweeted about an event that he was going to here in beautiful Nobleton, Ontario called the Feast of Fields. I checked out their website and noticed a media link — I submitted a pitch and was invited to attend — so now I want to tell you a little about the event. To help me I enlisted the organizers themselves and here’s what they have to say about the event.
2012 marks the 23rd year for Organic Advocates, Feast of Fields. This fun-filled afternoon in the heart of the Oak Ridges Moraine in beautiful King Township, showcases the best that organic fare has to offer. Your ticket is the gateway to a wonderful organic food experience. Over 130 Exhibitors, including prominent Chefs, Restaurants, Vintners, Brewers and Artisans are on-hand sampling their creative culinary expressions.
With your complimentary gift bag in-hand, (full of magazines, coupons, and the Feast of Fields cookbook published yearly for this event), stroll the marketplace, bid on the silent auction, visit the organic children’s garden, or go from booth to booth tasting, sipping, and exploring the world of Organic cuisine. Celebrity Chef Michael Smith will be on-hand to sign your cookbook.
The backdrop for this September 9th event is the Cold Creek Conservation Area, which offers a spectacular open-air feel.
Organic Advocates is a non-profit organization dedicated to the Organic lifestyle. This year’s proceeds from the event will help build the Pavilion, which had construction commence last year on-site.
Tickets are available on-line at www.feastoffields.org or by calling 905-859-3609. Organic Advocates, Feast of Fields, Sunday, September 9th, 2012, 1-5pm.
Taste, sip, savour, indulge, enjoy.
Take a minute to look at some of the pictures from previous years — but be careful, they are bound to make your mouth water!! Stay tuned … after the event there will certainly be a piece about this lux’s experience.
