The Vancouver Farmers Market is launching an annual fundraiser called Ripe (An Evening of Local Food and Libations) on Thursday, October 1st at Performance Works on Granville Island. They are promising local produce, regional brews and wines plus chefs including Robert Clark and Quang Dan of C Restaurant. Tix at any of the summer farmers markets or Barbara Jo's or EdibleBC on GIsle. Check out eatlocal.org for more.
PS I have no affiliation with YLFMS or the farmers markets, just thought this sounded like some food related fun!
