Culinary / Wine


The Wolfville Farmers’ Market invites you to its annual Tastes of the Valley event on Saturday, July 28, 8:30am-1pm. Tastes of the Valley is a culinary celebration of fresh local food and wine where chefs from local restaurants join regular market vendors and use Valley-farmed ingredients to make $3 taste concoctions to tantalize your taste buds.

“Come hungry! This is an event that showcases the Valley in its culinary splendor,” said Kelly Marie Redcliffe, Manager, Wolfville Farmers' Market. “We are in a culinary hub with impressively talented farmers, chefs, and winemakers. When they all work together...it’s marvelous. If you didn’t know it already, buying local is not only possible, it’s very, very tasty!”

Restaurants that focus on using fresh, local ingredients on their menus have been invited to join the regular Saturday vendors at the market for this special event. The menu is curated by market staff, ensuring that each dish uses ingredients sourced from farms and producers in the Annapolis Valley.

“It creates a really vivid image of how you can buy locally. When you taste something so delicious, and then have the chef who made it tell you that the beef, cheese, or fresh veggies that went into it can be purchased a few stalls over, it’s pretty special. That’s the message we hope people take home from the events that we put on,” says event organizer Scott Lewin.

$3 Taste Tickets are available for purchase at the Market Info Booth or Ticket Booth, where menus, event maps and ballots can also be picked up. Those who vote for their favourite chef by submitting a ballot can win $100 towards a meal from their favourite chef.

The chefs have an opportunity to win one of two awards: The People’s Choice and the The Panel’s Choice. Vote for your favourite and the chef that wins the most votes is the People’s Choice. A panel of judges will vote for the Panel’s Choice. Both awards will be given out a 12:30 pm.
As well as the featured chefs, there will be live music from Mike Aubé and the event will occur in the midst of our weekly market which is home to 70 vendors.
