The Eat Real Festival is an annual celebration of good food with a focus on food craft, street food, artisan beers, local wines and fresh and delicious food choices—all featuring sustainable local ingredients. By using fresh and local ingredients, Eat Real shows how easy it is to support a regional food system by bringing farmers, food producers and eaters together. By its fifth year, Eat Real has generated more than $1.5 million in sales revenues for participating vendors, and garnered extensive media coverage. Over 500,000 people have attended our events since 2009. (Source: http://eatrealfest.com)
