The Local Food Festival and Field Day is an annual event highlighting local food and agriculture in our region. The festival is organized by the MRCOG Agriculture Collaborative in partnership with Bernalillo County Open Space and a variety of local groups and organizations.
The continued success of this event reflects the ever-increasing demand for local agriculture, locally produced foods and gardening related activities. Many festival attendees have stated that they are now more willing to seek out New Mexico food products and to shop at area farmers' markets. Others have indicated a new interest in growing more food and including more fresh and local foods as a part of their regular diet.
Connecting the public with local growers, producers, and businesses is crucial in sustaining local agriculture. The Local Food Festival and Field Day is one step in helping to make those connections.
