SPAC Wine and Food Festival 2014

We were proud to be a sponsor of the 14th Annual Wine and Food Festival presented by Saratoga Performing Arts Center. Thousands of foodies attended this weekend long festival that featured a BBQ, Brews & Blues event, a Grand Tasting, and a Sunday Jazz Brunch! Healthy Living Market and Cafe was the featured establishment during the Grand Tasting in the Connoisseur Tent on Saturday.IMG_0690

Butcher Shop/Seafood Manager Paul Hoffman and his team prepared a classic steamship round that was brined for seven days and slow roasted for over eight hours. The flavor and presentation was amazing! The house made shrimp salad, foie gras, and charcuterie selections were also delightful.

We were also lucky enough to have three local cheese makers with us! Three Village Cheese, Netlle Mettle, and Vermont Creamery all had wonderful selections to sample. We proudly sell many of their cheeses in our Cheese and Bread Department. Special thanks to Cheese and Bread buyer Mark Smith and Wine/Beer Manager Charlotte Guyton!
