It’s about two months away and I’m already excited. The Eat Real Festival at Jack London Square, Oakland is described by the founders as a mix between street food festival, county fair, and block party where people can come together to celebrate good times and fresh, local food.
At Eat Real, they have created an event where not only can anyone try tasty, handmade eats and drinks, but where they can also discover where your food comes from, meet the people who grow and make it, and learn how it’s made. Support Oakland and local businesses.
This event has been very successful in the past and I always learn something new. If you are so inclined, you can even try your hand at making some food at the event yourself.
With free entry and no food item costing more than $5 it’s a real deal!
All food includes local, organic, and sustainable ingredients! The concept is that eating real does not have to mean eating real expensively.
In years past they have had over 60 street food vendors, 30 beers and wines on tap, 30 craft food market vendors, backyard farmers with animals and garden installations, demonstrations and workshops including the mozzarella, vinegar, bitters, and sauerkraut making, live music with Bay Area based bands and DJs, and much more. It’s worth saving the date!
I look forward to seeing you at the Eat Real Festival in Oakland is at Jack London Square from September 21 – 23, 2012.
