(Albuquerque, NM – October 7, 2013) - Come enjoy the 2013 Local Food Festival and Field Day, at the Historic Hubbell House in Albuquerque’s South Valley this Sunday. This year’s theme – “Returning to the Land: Planting the Future” – focuses on celebrating our present day New Mexico local food producers, and cultivating the next generation of New Mexico Growers. Food Festival attendees can expect to see young farmers and school-aged gardeners front and center involved in many festival favorites – live music, kids’ activities, workshops and more!

…and don’t forget your appetitite!

• Local farmers will have your favorite fall New Mexico veggies.
• Value added producers will be selling jams, salsas, baked goods, soaps and more using local ingredients.
• Edible Santa Fe will host the Chef Demos and an “all ages” Pie Contest! Learn (and taste) a little from some local pros, but then show ‘em how it’s done with your best pie recipe!
• Abq Food Trucks will be serving up a variety of fresh, hot food that includes one or more locally-sourced ingredients.
The festival is FREE and open to the public!
