Taste of the Bay – Local Food Festival

Taste of the Bay







Taste of the Bay is a free-admission food festival celebrating the food of Chequamegon Bay. Produced by the Chequamegon Food Co-op and hosted at the Ashland Area Farmer’s Market on Saturday, August 15, 2015 from 8 a.m. to noon, Taste of the Bay aims to showcase the fresh food and culinary talents of businesses in the Chequamegon Bay area. The festival will feature foods grown by local farmers and produced by caterers and value-added product creators.

Born out of a desire to connect local food producers with more customers, the festival will give just a taste of foods created in the Chequamegon Bay area. Local food vendors will offer samples of their creations for festival goers to try out. There will also be information about local foods and  a book signing by Mark Phillips, author of “The Old Rittenhouse Inn Cookbook.”

If you would like to become a vendor or send food samples, please contact Meagan Van Beest, Marketing and Member Services Manager at (715) 682-8251 or outreach@cheqfood.coop.
