Tasting the Best at the 14th Annual Flavors of the Upper Valley

Apr 06, 2015 12:32PM, Published by Kirsten Gehlbach, Categories: Food+Drink, Today Local Events



Bring your appetite and sample the finest home-grown culinary creations at Vital Communities’ 14th Annual Flavors of the Valley – the Upper Valley’s premier local-foods tasting expo. More than 50 local farms, food businesses, and restaurants will offer tasty tidbits and connect with consumers on Sunday, April 12, from 11am to 3pm at Hartford High School.

“Along with many wonderful returning vendors, we also have several businesses and restaurants that are new to Flavors this year and feature some excellent local creations including maple butter cookies and small-batch artisan halvah,” says Vital Communities’ Event Manager Emily Gardner. “This is the perfect opportunity to put a face to your local food producers, sample the best food in the Upper Valley, and purchase your favorite finds. Make sure to come hungry!” 

In addition to sampling foods from the many unique vendors, consumers can sign up for Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares and purchase products ranging from meats and cheese to sauces, candies, and baked goods. Attendees are encouraged to bring their shopping bags and coolers to the event for purchases, along with their own plates, utensils, and napkins to help reduce waste.

Since its beginning 14 years ago, Flavors of the Valley has brought together farmers, local food producers, and consumers to build relationships that strengthen local agriculture and the local economy. The event offers opportunities for neighbors to purchase local foods and connect with producers, and for farms and food businesses to form new partnerships that make local food accessible in new places and ways.

Everyone is welcome at Flavors of the Valley. Admission is $10 per person, with children 6 and under free, and a family maximum of $30. Proceeds benefit Vital Communities’ Valley Food & Farm Program. The event is sponsored by The Co-op Food Stores, Mascoma Savings Bank, New Hampshire Department of Agriculture, King Arthur Flour, Yankee Farm Credit, and Great Eastern Radio.
