Feast of Fields is a ‘gastronomic journey towards a sustainable, local food system’


For those unfamiliar with the work of FarmFolkCityFolk, the non-profit organization supports local growers and farmers and works towards a local, sustainable food system. Not surprisingly, many of Vancouver’s high end restaurants would also like access to good quality, local, seasonal produce.


At the annual Feast of Fields event, a host of British Columbia’s most talented chefs, food producers, food artisans, vintners and brewers come together to benefit FarmFolkCityFolk’s annual fundraiser.


Which Vancouver restaurants will be at Feast of Fields?

You’ll find the whole gamut at the Feast of Fields, from seasoned campaigners, like Raincity Grill, to enthusiastic young pups like Bao Bei Chinese Brasserie. You’ll recognize most of the names from conversations with your foodie friends (think Aqua Riva, Aphrodite’s Café, Oru Restaurant, C Restaurant and Cibo Trattoria).

How does Feast of Fields work?

The feast is limited to 700 ticket holders. Think of it as restaurants disguised as a farmers market. You have the wine glass and the linen napkin, but you wander from tent to tent sampling bites and nibbles and raving with other diners about how good it all is. And all your “sacrifice” helps to develop a secure food future.
