Eat, Learn, Connect, Repeat at the Good Food Festival
As part of FamilyFarmed’s 14th annual Good Food EXPO, the Good Food Festival returns March 24 to celebrate food that is local, sustainable, humane and fair. The EXPO brings together families, producers, top chefs and experts to celebrate the fast-growing Good Food movement.
Workshops include Good Food Is Good Medicine, Reducing Food Waste and more. Participants can shop for local foods at the Good Food Marketplace; watch celebrity chef demonstrations with Sarah Grueneberg, Rick Bayless, Ina Pinkney and others; participate in micro-workshops and have their backyard soil tested in the Organic Valley Good Food Commons; connect kids to food with the Purple Asparagus Kids’ Corner and Scavenger Hunt; eat at the Good Food Court; and much more.
Also, brighten food and drink with homemade vinegars in a Master Class with author Michael Harlan Turkell, and Abe Conlon and Adrienne Lo, from Fat Rice.
Free admission, but preregistration is required. Location: 725 W. Roosevelt Rd., Chicago. Also purchase necessary Master Class tickets at GoodFoodEXPO.org.
