Buy Fresh Buy Local Hampton Roads will host 4th annual Farm to Fork local food celebration on Sunday, September 21st from 3-6pm at the Virginia Tech Agricultural Research and Extension Center.

“This is a vibrant event,” says Director Kirsten Halverson, “that brings together a community of people to celebrate the wonderful local food found in Hampton Roads.”  The event features local food tastings prepared by seventeen Buy Fresh Buy Local partner chefs, using fresh, seasonal ingredients from the farms and waters of Hampton Roads. Taste local beer, wine and cider while enjoying live music and a contra dance band from the area.

Activities for the kids will include a live farm-animal exhibit and local food crafts. Vendors will sell local honey, soap, jam and more. An extensive raffle with items donated by local businesses will also help raise money for the Hampton Roads chapter of Buy Fresh Buy Local, which is a non-profit organization that helps connect consumers to fresh, local food and helps support small, family farms and producers.

For a more personal interaction with the chefs and farmers who make this event possible consider buying a VIP ticket.  VIP tickets allow you to arrive half an hour earlier to engage with the chefs, farmers, brew masters and wine makers who make this event possible.  VIP tickets are limited and cost $49 per person, or $399 for a reserved table of eight.
