Mark your calendar for this year’s annual Food Festival and Field Day that will take place on October 13 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Growers, vendors, chefs and community organizations all converge  on the Gutierrez-Hubbell House property for this special one day event of celebrating all things local and edible! Live music, food tasting and children’s activities are just some of the things planned for this community celebration.This is an event not to miss!

The Local Food Festival and Field Day is an annual event highlighting local  food and agriculture in our region. The festival is organized by the MRCOG Agriculture Collaborative in partnership with Bernalillo County Open Space and a variety of local groups and organizations.

The continued success of this event reflects the ever-increasing demand for local agriculture, locally produced foods and gardening related activities. Many festival attendees have stated that they are now more willing to seek out New Mexico food products and to shop at area farmers’ markets. Others have indicated a new interest in growing more food and including more fresh and local foods as a part of their regular diet.

Connecting the public with local growers, producers, and businesses is crucial in sustaining local agriculture. The Local Food Festival and Field Day provides one step in helping to make those connections.
