5th Annual GRAND TASTE TOUR – A Farm to Fork Experience

digital aug 18-05

THE 124 GRAND MARKET IS PROUD TO BE BRINGING YOU ANOTHER SUMMER OF THE GRAND TASTE TOUR!

DATE CHANGED TO AUGUST 18.

Tickets on sale now!

An interactive, educational experience that will celebrate and promote local food grown and raised in Alberta. On Saturday, August 18, 2018 participants will be engaged in guided food tours including producers from outside our City’s limits. Featuring tastings and other educational tidbits and a special farm to fork dinner you will NOT want to miss!

The Grand Taste Tour is a fundraising initiative that started in 2014 as a way to generate funds to facilitate operations of the 124 Grand Market, Little Beans, and Little Beans Farm Camp (coming soon!).

On August 18th, we will be heading West to Wildwood and working with the very cool Doherty Family out at Stonepost Farms.

Stonepost Farms produce food that is natural and healthy while maintaining the integrity of the land. On this tour we will learn about their regenerative farming practices, as well as other interactive workshops where we will discover entomophagy (the raising and production of insect protein), bees, and more! This experience is not to be missed!

Partners include:
-Stonepost Farms
Camola Sustainable Foods
Prairie Noodle Shop

More partners to be announced.

At the end of a jam-packed day, we are honoured to have Award winning Chef Eric Hanson and his team at Prairie Noodle Shop preparing a delicious meal served in the picturesque backdrop of Stonepost Farms.

*Tour Tickets include transportation from drop-point within City limits, one snack, facilities tours at partner farms and a farm to fork meal. Alcoholic beverages and pairings available at additional cost. Tours will depart from Edmonton. We are scheduled for a 10am departure and a 7pm return. Departure time subject to change depending on partners and tour stops.

Menu will only be able to accommodate omnivores due to the nature of our farm partners. Unfortunately we will not be able to comply with other dietary restrictions. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Hello! I am very interested to do this event. I was wondering if for the day if we should bring extra snacks. And I was wondering how big the dinner will be; would it be enough for a man with a big appetite?

    Thanks!

      Hi Valerie! Sorry we missed you comment. There will be a light lunch during the day but we find that it is always wise to bring a few snacks if hunger is a worry. And the dinner is usually more than enough with left overs to spare!

      You won’t go home hungry!

      We also changed the date to be August 18 so you can still get tickets here http://www.wearewildheart.com/tickets/grand-taste-tour-2018

      We hope you can join us!
