Harvard Square Urban Ag Fair

This past weekend, the 2nd Annual Urban-Ag Fair was held in Harvard Square. The girl and I took a trip over in the early afternoon to check it out. (We also stopped by the Charles Hotel Farmer's Market, held every Sunday - you should check it out!)

There were tables all around the square with food for sale as well as free samples of local foods and information about green initiatives in the area. One table even had different kinds of pickled fruits and vegetables to sample. (We didn't have time to try any, although they all looked and smelled great!) We did, however, get to try a few Grown-Up Sodas which were really good. We especially liked the Extra Dry Ginger Ale and the Dry Cranberry Lime.

Other tables featured ongoing and upcoming local food events. One of these that caught our eye was for the Boston Local Food Festival, coming up on October 2nd. It's going to be a big event down on the waterfront near the Children's Museum that will feature local food, exhibits and local music. It sounds like it will be a great time, and we will definitely be checking it out!
