Plan to attend the first Winter Park Harvest Festival on Saturday, November 20. It’s an all-day affair with farmers markets (real farmers, too), seminars, appropriate bluegrass music and a farm-to-table dinner at the end of the day. It starts at 8 a.m. and continues throughout the day. Events will be held in Central Park’s West Meadow (sounds so bucolic, doesn’t it).
Click here for the Winter Park Harvest Web site for a full list of events.
The dinner is from 7 to 9 p.m. and will feature cuisine from such restaurants as Ravenous Pig, Luma on Park, Mi Tomatina, Cuisiniers Catering and others using all local products. Tickets are $95 per person and may be purchased at the Web site.
This is an important event in Central Florida’s continuance toward embracing and promoting our local products. Even if you don’t go out for the dinner, I hope you’ll stop by and give your support during the day.
