Buy veggie and herb seedlings, fruit trees, local food, artisanal products. Attend workshops, presentations, and demos to learn about growing, cooking and eating seasonally. Talk to experts. Listen to music, watch amateur cooks, students and influential local chefs square off in two Local Cookoff Competitions, creating awesome dishes with a mystery box of 100% locally grown produce.
