Cambridge Urban Ag. Fair - September 20

Next week, the Cambridge Square Business Association is hosting their First Annual Urban-Ag fair. It's being held on the very historic site of the first marketplace in Newtowne (1630's). The 2009 Urban-Ag fair will bring to market some of the most incredible locally grown fruits and vegetables ever seen. Prizes will be awarded for the tastiest, the biggest, the most interesting, and in some cases the ugliest fruits, veggies, baked goods, honey, flowers, preserves, pickles and eggs!

Cooking demonstrations from local chefs, gardeners, and "Cambridge School student-growers" will be held throughout the day. Come to sample recipes and/or to stock up on the bounty of the harvest from our local farmers markets, get tips from local experts on composting, community gardening, rain barrels, and bee-keeping! All events are free, open to the public and family-friendly. Kids are encouraged to enter to win Student Prizes in every category!

Where: Winthrop Park (on the corner of JFK Street + Mt Auburn)
When: Sunday, Sept. 20 - 11am to 4pm
Why: To celebrate the wealth of local agricultural found in Cambridge today
Cost: FREE
