Sacramento's Farm to Fork Festival Splashier

By
Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

There is your Sacramento Realtor, hanging out between the A and M in the Sacramento logo for our Farm to Fork Festival. And that thing behind me? Looks like a helicopter, right? Pretty space agey, high-tech.

Since my husband works at the state, we have free parking for these events, but we could have walked from Land Park, too. The main thing about the Farm to Fork Festival is timing and the excessively long lines. Sure, the lamb booth when we walked in offered such a tasty menu that people were lined up down the block. I was hungry enough to eat anything that did not involve a long line.

We were lucky to find two big sausage booths, across from each other. The one on the south side of Capitol had a long line, but the the sausage booth on the north did not. After grabbing a sausage, a beer sounded like a good idea. Headed over and struggled a bit to even find the end of the line. Looking forward, I could tell it contained far more people than I was willing to wait to be served ahead of me.

However, the craft cocktail wagon? Wide open! No line at all! You can read more and see a lot more photographs, including the cutest goats ever at this link in my personal blog today: Photos of Farm to Fork Festival in Sacramento.

Hi Elizabeth...what a fun festival... the farm to fork concept is very big in Charlotte these days and getting bigger. I would not have waited on line for any sausage (but then again, I don't eat sausage!)

Elizabeth, sounds like you enjoyed this one, and thankfully found some booths without lines!   I would have liked the lamb booth too.

Somehow, this Farm to Fork Festival slipped my mind.  My grandkid, Baron, and I headed to Indian Grinding Rock State Park instead.

Nina Hollander You may be surprised to learn that Sacramento calls itself the Farm to Fork Capitol of America. I mean, hey, do you know how many tomatoes we personally deliver to Charlotte?

Kathy Streib Have you touched a pig? They are all wirey!!!! Their coats look like they'd have soft fur, fuzz, whatev, but it's like a wire brush. If I thought about where all my protein originates, I would never eat an another animal. As it is, I can no longer consume octopus. I've met octopus. Touched them. Learned about them. And now I can't eat anything that intelligent.

Joan Cox Yeah, that lamb smelled tasty, but there is rarely anything worth waiting in line for except a bathroom and, even then, there is always the mens' room. Or behind a tree!

Myrl Jeffcoat Now I'll have to look up Indian Grinding Rock State Park to see where you went. Adam and I did talk about going on a hike on Sunday to make up for the humongous giant sausage we stuffed into our faces, but all we managed to do was walk a few blocks to Selland's and we missed brunch anyway.

Hi Elizabeth... couldn't begin to guess how many tomatoes are exported to the Queen City from Sacramento... I just know that an awful lot of them are grown here, as well.
