Farmers Markets, Festivals and Fundraisers, Oh my!
Greetings to all you DIG-gers out there! What an amazing summer its been so far and how quickly its flying by is crazy. So here we find ourselves in the third month of our Farmers Market at Preston High School in Throggs Neck and it has been a fantastic experience. We have built so many new relationships with like minded individuals of both the community and other local farmers, purveyors. Thanks to all who show up every week to be apart of this market and support local farmers and businesses, no matter what side of the table your standing on what you do makes a difference!
This past Wednesday we were in the Bronx at the Eat NYC Food & Wine Festival for our third year and as always an outstanding positive vibe coursed through this event. An evening of energy was loaded with local restaurants, wine makers, craftsman of everything from hot sauce to hand rolled cigars. Even us farmers were there making moves at the Hip Hop for hunger event of the season. Several designers gave the crowd a glimpse of their fashion styling with Aval & Co Runway Productions. Proceeded by several performers just killin' it on stage! On top of all that we met and talked with so many new people, all of which showed us nothing but love and support. Gratitude to all who attended this event, especially those that made their way to our tent, some much positive feed back and interest was fantastic. We look forward to sharing our harvest, ideas and goals for this great cause again next year. If you have yet to attend there is always next year, get your tickets early in 2019.
