4th Annual Philly Farm & Food Fest is THIS Sunday

One of our favorite locavore events is THIS Sunday.

The Philly Farm & Food Fest, hosted by PASA & Fair Food will host over 150 exhibitors, creating an annual marketplace for farmers & local food producers.

Also happening this year: a CSA Pop-Up Shop (with my choose-your-own CSA for 4 years, Red Earth Farm & Jig-Bee, who we chatted with recently)- where you’ll score a FREE admission to the 2016 festival if you sign up for a CSA on spot. Afterward, check out the Book Nook with local authors, Classroom for urban homesteading tips & local libations lounge.

Another notable event for Sunday? This one caught our eye from the website:

Philadelphia Food Policy and the Next Mayor Forum Room 126A (11:30AM – 1:00PM)

The Philadelphia Food Policy Advisory Council (FPAC) invites you to a free, public forum on Food Policy and the Next Mayor to discuss the future of food policy in Philadelphia. Diane Cornman-Levy, Executive Director of the Federation of Neighborhood Centers and Co-Chair of FPAC, will provide background on FPAC and the current state of Philadelphia food policy. Jonathan Deutsch, Professor and Founding Director of the Center for Hospitality & Sport Management at Drexel University and FPAC Appointed Member, will moderate discussion.

Here’s a clip from the 2013 show:
