The North Fork Foodie Tour 2015
Celebrate the North Fork’s Bounty
The North Fork of Long Island is famous for delectable fare. Think Peconic Bay scallops and Long Island duck, strawberries, potatoes and wines. The tradition of farming has continued and expanded. Now it’s taken on yet another life as artisans have begun to produce distinctive foods and explore methods of sustainable agriculture.
9th Annual North Fork Foodie Tour sponsored by North Fork Reform Synagogue on
Sunday, Sept. 20, 2015, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
We anticipate about 20 vendors, representing a wide array of food producers on the North Fork, all providing behind-the-scenes tours of their farms and other establishments. The North Fork Foodie Tour has become the premier event of its kind on the North Fork!
Once again, the Foodie Tour will be self-guided, similar to a house tour, and provide the opportunity for all who attend to visit North Fork producers of unique, local, artisanal food and wine. We know from experience that the Tour is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the finest of what the North Fork has to offer, to inform the attendees of how the products are made and to emphasize what makes them so special!
