Feast of Fields 2019 will be held on Aug. 25 at Snowdon House Gourmet & Gifts in North Saanich.

FarmFolk CityFolk’s annual food celebration and fundraiser will highlight the contribution chefs, restaurants, farmers, ranchers, fishers, food artisans, vintners, brewers and distillers make to the local food economy.

With wine glass and napkin in hand, guests of the gourmet wandering harvest festival are invited to meander around the fields at 1890 Mills Rd. from 1 to 4 p.m., tasting the local creations, listening to live music and bidding on silent auction items.
