Slow Food Athens Summer Fiesta and Siesta
We will meet up at the Athens Farmers Market at 10 a.m. on Saturday June 20th to sample the 40-plus Slow Food-friendly market vendors.  Many of these folks sell their products to Columbus markets and restaurants  now you can go local with these locavores.  As a bonus, we will be visiting during the markets Berry Bake-Off, so even more goodies with be available for hungry Slow Foodies.

Our next stop will be at 1:00 p.m. for the grand tour of Snowville Creamery.

At 3:30 p.m., we will arrive at Integration Acres to meet with Chris and learn about produce, pawpaws and goats.

At 7:00, we will return to Athens for dinner at Zoe.  We will be dining on a five-course meal of many of the items we saw at market in the morning.  Tickets are limited to 26 people.

After dinner we will take a break to explore Athens at night.  Some people might return to Columbus while others may stay in town.  We have also been invited to camp out for free at Snowville Creamery. (Please let us know if you opt for this camping option).

On Sunday, we sleep in a bit, then at 10 a.m. we head to Janas Soul Food Kitchen for brunch made with bunch of local produce and products. Tickets are limited to 26 souls for this event as well.

Around noon, we will carpool to Sassafras Farms for a tour.  Our host will be Ed Perkins, the dean of all things organic in Athens and former OEFFA (Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association) President.

Afterward, we may have another formal or informal event in town to wrap up our Slow Food weekend. Stay tuned for more details.

Please contact Slow Food member Jim Ellison for information on lodging, field trips and additional places to eat.
