Everyone loves a good food festival, especially when it’s for a great cause. Head to Brooklyn Borough Hall this Saturday for Tastes of Brooklyn, a ‘Field-to-Fork Culinary Festival’ in support of Seeds in the Middle‘s food advocacy for kids.
Tastes of Brooklyn will feature tasting booths from some of our favorite Brooklyn restaurants and food shops, including Saul, iCi, Palo Santo, Egg, The Meat Hook, Abigail Cafe and Wine Bar, Shelskey’s Smoked Fish. Local farms will be there, too, including Red Jacket Orchards, Glebocki Farms, Wilklow Orchards, and Iona Hill Farm. Top it off with Grimaldi’s and Sal’s Pizzeria for the kids and you’ve got a heck of a Saturday lunch. Tickets are $35 ahead of time and $45 at the festival. Each ticket includes six tastes.
Seeds in the Middle is a Brooklyn-based non-profit that works to educate and empower kids when it comes to food. They work on edible garden projects, host student-run ‘Hip2B Healthy Markets’ at schools (providing cheap alternatives to junk food snacks), organizing hands on cooking classes and culinary field trips, and more. If you’re looking for a way to encourage healthy eating and exercise in Brooklyn’s kids, Seeds in the Middle is a great program to support.
And hey, if you get to show that support with a little Saturday snacking, even better! Get more information and tickets here.
Tastes of Brooklyn, Saturday Oct. 15, 11:30am-3:00pm at Brooklyn Borough Hall.
