Experience the Tastes of York County for Outstanding Local Cuisine

The York County Chapter of Buy Fresh Buy Local (BFBL) will hold its annual Tastes of York County fundraiser from 3 to 6 p.m., June 21, at Brown’s Orchards & Farm Market, in Loganville. The mission of the York County BFBL Chapter is to connect the people of York County to locally produced food and farm products.

Twenty local food and wine vendors will be handing out samples and educational workshops will be held on backyard composting, homemade herb vinegars, container gardening, edible plants and a cooking demonstration.

BFBL York County will also kick off their annual summer scavenger hunt game, fueled by the freshest food in York County. Maps can be picked up at the event, downloaded from the BFBL York website or at any of 35 participating locations. The Scavenger Hunt runs from June 21 through August 8 and invites the public to make their way through 35 local farms and businesses to discover homegrown goodness all over York County. Those that visit at least eight of the 35 locations and get their map stamped will be entered to win prizes from local farms and food providers. Those that visit all 35 locations will be entered to win the grand prize, which will be awarded at the Scavenger Hunt Wrap-Up Party on August 9, at the York County 4-H Center, during the 4-H Fair.
