This past weekend, City Harvest hosted it’s first ever fall harvest market called the Brooklyn Local, a food festival to help showcase Brooklyn’s rapidly growing population of culinary artisans as well as help feed more of New York City’s hungry. The Brooklyn Local hosted more than 75 food vendors highlighting locally made food such as chocolate covered potato chips from NuNu chocolates and a seemingly endless supply of local baked goods, prepared food, ice cream, beef jerky and more.
The highlight of the event was the tasting tent where ticket holders were able to sample some of Brooklyn’s best prepared food. The vibe was a welcome mix of families, hipsters and unpretentious foodies enjoying an afternoon of delicious fun.
There was an interactive kids zone that families could enjoy that included cooking demonstrations and activities such as cupcake demonstrations and educational activities about food.
This was an incredible event that we hope continues to come back year after year.
