Celebrating Local Food & Local Farms


We are sorry to share that in light of the COVID-19 crisis, we have decided to cancel the Farm to Fork Picnic in June 2020. Read more here. Over the past thirteen years, the Farm to Fork community has helped to drive the incredible growth of our local food movement. During this critical time, even without the opportunity to celebrate local food in person, we hope you’ll join us in supporting the many restaurants, farms and food businesses that have kept our local food scene thriving for so many years.

You can find a full list of participating restaurants, farms, food artisans, and beverage purveyors that have participated in Farm to Fork events over the years here.

Please join our #FarmtoForkFridays social media campaign by tagging the restaurants, farms, or food artisans you’re supporting and sharing what dishes you’ve enjoyed!

Thank you and we hope you'll join us for future Farm to Fork events!
