Conscious food is not only better for the environment than its unconscious counterpart—it's also more likely to clear heated debates on the proper pronunciation of “Goethe.” Prove your educated commitment to the environment with today's Groupon: for $13, you get two tickets for admission to the Conscious Food Festival (a $26 value). Choose from two options:
- Saturday, August 14, 11:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m.
- Sunday, August 15, 11:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m.
The Conscious Food Festival bills itself as Canada's first sustainable-sustenance fair, and the eco-friendly event will sprout from the fertile grounds of Fort York for two days in August. The collaborative fair is designed to promote the sustainable and slow-food movement while quickly introducing the masses to local eats and gregarious alligators. As live music wafts through the grounds, visitors will have the opportunity to taste local and sustainable treats, observe chef and farmer presentations, partake in interactive exhibits and seminars, and wander through an urban farm, all while gaining a well-rounded education on the nature of eco-friendly eating.
A lineup of local vendors, nearly all located within a 100-mile radius of the festival, will be selling their sustainable wares, including produce, beer, wine, and retail products, all for your conscious consumption. Festival goers can try hormone-free pork sausage made with beer or corn tortillas made on the spot and paired with a chilled rose wine. Or treat your palate to hearty fare such as Vivaldi potatoes served with a tart tomato jam and covered with bacon bits, green onions, and melted Monforte cheese and Amsterdam beer. Complete your sustainable feast with an adult sundae—soft local cheese topped with seasonal fruit preserves and paired with Prince Edward County wine.
Eating local food is healthier, helps reduce your carbon footprint, and helps you disappear into your surroundings with chameleon-like ease. Reap the benefits of the sustainable food movement at the Conscious Food Festival, or gift this Groupon to a good Samaritan shopping for a global cause.
The tickets offered with this Groupon do not include food or drink vouchers.
