On Saturday, September 28th, 2013, the first annual Farm to Fork Festival was held in Sacramento, California. The event featured many different restaurants, organizations, vendors, mobile food trucks as well as beer and wine tastings.
Thousands of participants showed up to enjoy and learn how the Sacramento region contributes to their community through agriculture. As they walked down each street, they could easily find lots of activities to participate in, nutritional information to learn about and a variety of delicious food and beverages to try.
“I like the programs the festival has for children to learn on how to eat and grow their own vegetables,” says Patty Frank, a participant in the Farm to Fork festival. The festival had many things to enjoy for all ages. Anyone who stopped by the Savemart tent would find an area where children could learn about and plant their own seeds.
