Local Food Fest

Posted by Shana Meshbesher on Wed, Apr 10, 2019 @ 05:05 PM

You are invited to VFC Local Food Fest – come & celebrate all things local!

This all-day event is a replacement for our much loved P6 Tailgate Party. Since we have so much more space inside our store, we’ve moved the party indoors.

We’ll have a variety of local farmers and producers around the store offering free samples of their delicious products. There will be multiple free classes throughout the day in our Co-op Community Room as well as prize drawings! Family-friendly fun for everyone!
