First Fig Party coming up on August 2nd

August 2nd will be our first Fig Party!  Welcome to the California Fig Advisory Board as hosts of this new event.  Much like the Peach Party and The Pistachio Party we’ll have a night about figs at the Farmers Market!  Join the California Fig Advisory Board staff and friends who will be providing samples of foods using figs in the center of 4th and Pollasky.  Chef David Pol and Chef Christian Romero from the Institute of Technology Culinary Arts School will be on hand demonstrating how to use figs in recipes.

Chris Shackleford of Trelio’s and Dustin Stewart from Dusty Buns will have a Chef Competition at the corner of 4th and Pollasky dueling it out with their recipes!  Mike Scott (formerly of CBS/47), will emcee the contest.  Come out to cheer on the chefs!

Music will be provided by Mel Mason and we’ll be featuring artists and food trucks South of Fifth Street.

Did you know?  Although considered a fruit, the fig is actually a flower that is inverted into itself!
