This Weekend: Greensgrow Farms Fall Festival


Grab your reusable shopping bags, people, because tomorrow is the Sixth Annual Subaru Fall Festival at Greensgrow Farms! Since we wouldn’t be telling you about it unless there was high potential for deliciousness, you’ll trust that it is shaping up to be some tasty neighborhood fun.

This free event is jammed with activities, including live music all day, a chili competition to be judged by festival attendees (and we all know how judgmental Philadelphians can be), and a “Sausage Party” rally to elect Milkshake, Greensgrow’s pig, the Pig Mayor of Kensington (no, really). If you’d prefer your pig on a plate, kielbasa, pie and mac and cheese have also been promised alongside snacks by Farm Truck, Vittles, and Mama’s Meatballs, with sodas from Philadelphia Brewing Company and ReAnimator Coffee to wash it all down.

Rich Landau & Kate Jacoby of Vedge will be conducting seasonal cooking demonstrations (with samples!) from 11:00 to 1:00 and then signing copies of Vedge, their new cookbook.  Other workshops and demos for the gastronomically inclined (and agri-curious) abound: Make Your Own  Vanilla Extract (1:15pm), Creating Soda from Fresh Ingredients (2pm), Bee Keeping, How to Raise Backyard Chickens, and Apple Cider Making. There’s also a whole other set of workshops and activities for kiddos (face painting! apple stamping!). Dozens of vendors will be hawking wares and the Greensgrow Farmstand will have all the fresh, local produce you need.

The details: September 28, 2013, 10:30 to 3:30, rain or shine, 2501 E. Cumberland Street, Philadelphia. Or you can just check out the website below.
