Open Farms Harvest
October 14, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Get ready to savour the flavours of the season at the 2nd annual Open Farms Harvest event, proudly presented by Hartington Equipment. On Saturday, October 14th, from 1-4:30 p.m., the picturesque Memorial Hall, nestled within Kingston City Hall, and the vibrant Springer Market Square will be transformed into a culinary haven for all. This ticketed autumn celebration promises an unforgettable experience, where attendees can immerse themselves in a meticulously curated harvest food journey. Eight talented local chefs and eight esteemed area beverage companies will unite their skills to craft tantalizing tastings, all made from the freshest local ingredients sourced from the bountiful farms of rural Kingston, Frontenac County, and the surrounding regions.
What’s new and exciting this year is the addition of the Farmer’s Market, showcasing the very farms that supply the ingredients to our culinary maestros. You’ll also find some of the weekly farm producing vendors from the Kingston Public Market offering their locally grown and raised delicacies. The event will feature Ontario wines from Prince Edward County, craft beers from the finest breweries in the greater Kingston and Frontenac area, and even a local coffee company and creamery for your enjoyment. Attendees can look forward to live demonstrations, including a charcuterie board and wine pairing demo with Chef Brad Long and Closson Chase Wines, as well as a Daft Beer and cheese pairing demo sponsored by Stone City Woodworks. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to connect with farmers and gain insight into the origins of your food.
