What an amazing foodie weekend here in RVA! As the growing season winds down, it seems that the celebrations are on, full tilt! Perhaps everyone is getting a jump on Food Day, coming up October 24.
In celebration of the harvest, several Virginia Whole Foods Markets are transforming themselves into apple orchards, complete with games, apple tastings, and cooking demos. I hear there will even be carmel apple making and hard cider available on tap! Whether seeking heirlooms varietals or local picks, the in-store festivities will allow customers to compare apples to apples. The festivities start at noon and end at 4 this Saturday.
Also Saturday, the first film fest of all foodie films put on by Slow Food RVA! Check out the details on the Reel Food Film Feast, which is also this Saturday from 9am- 6pm at the Byrd Theater. Some of your favorite foodies will be there!
What other food- related fun is going on this weekend? The RFC has a fun Food Day celebration planned- we'll tell you all about it, and you know we'd love to hear about how you celebrate. Food Day, my new favorite holiday!
