Well, the weather guys finally pushed out the rain, and we could not have had a more perfect afternoon for the first Fresh Food Fest on May 24.

We want to thank all of our volunteers who helped us with the set up and the cleanup. Additionally, we appreciate our friendly roamers who were around to answer questions and to register guests for the gift card drawing.

Grow RVA secured the food trucks and vendors for us, and their on-site leaders helped to design the layout for the afternoon. Our band for the evening, Suggesting Rhythm, provided a quality set of tunes from the Grateful Dead. Plus, they even brought along some of their fans. The exceptionally gifted Jonathan Austin, entertained all age groups with his magic tricks, juggling skills, and quick sense of humor.

The vendors and food truck owners had a good night, and we hope all of our guests did too. Fresh Food Fest is an opportunity to connect to our community, and we enjoyed meeting lots of our neighbors and new friends too.

We hope you already have us marked on your calendar for Thursday, June 21. And to let you know, we are going to adjust the start time to 5 PM

Thanks again for coming out, we look forward to seeing you again.
