Farm & Food Friday is back!
I’m going to experiment with monthly round-ups of food-related goings-on.
I’d appreciate your feedback. Is this helpful? Enjoyable? What sort of events do you want to see more or less of?

9am till 2pm
Free (fee for the tournament)
Contests include seed spitting, eating and a watermelon crawl
Greensboro Farmers Curb Market – Lawn
9am till 12pm
Tasting plates, $7; Fried Green Tomato Kit, $6
9am-8pm & 9am-5pm
All your standard fair fare, plus sourwood & other honey tastings and bee demonstrations
Ocracoke Fig Festival
4 to 8pm & 10am till 11pm
Free, some events have a ticket fee
Georgeann Eubanks wrote such a charming piece on the unique figs found on Ocracoke and their history in her recent book, The Month of Their Ripening, that I have this festival on my calendar.
“Two days of figstastic fun for the whole family…”
