This year’s Farm2Fork festival will benefit AdkAction

The 11th Annual Farm 2 Fork Festival will be held on Saturday, September 5 at the San in Saranac Lake. This year’s theme is “Community is the Cure,” with a nod to the historical healing properties of Saranac Lake.

The festival will feature online ordering that will be open August 26 – September 2 at www.Farm2ForkFestival.com. Visitors will fill their picnic baskets online and collect them on Saturday, September 5 from 10 am to 1 pm via a drive-thru contactless pick-up at the San, located at 600 Ama Way.

“Gail Brill of Adirondack Green Circle founded the festival 11 years ago and it’s been run by a group of dedicated volunteers since 2017. This has been a difficult time for many people who have been hit hard by the economic impacts of COVID-19, and so we thought it was crucial that we work with local restaurants using ingredients grown on North Country farms for the festival,” said Jacob Vennie-Vollrath, a member of the festival’s organizing committee.
“We’re also thrilled that proceeds will benefit AdkAction, which immediately stepped up to create Emergency Food Packages for local individuals and families facing food insecurity due to the COVID-19 crisis. Now more than ever, we need to pull together as a community and support our neighbors,” added Nick Delaini of the festival organizing committee.
