Northeast Alabama Community College (NACC) is hosting a Sand Mountain Foodways Fair on Monday, November 7, 2016, at 4:00 pm to promote awareness of local food producers, discuss farm to table and sustainable agriculture movements, and celebrate the farming tradition in Northeast Alabama.
Chef Crystal McKone of Old Town Stock House in Guntersville, Alabama, will be the speaker. Following Ms. McKone’s talk, local farms and food producers will be on hand to sell their products. Examples of participating farms include Lake Majestik Farms, Maggie Valley Berry Patch and Gardens, and Wigley Gourmet Old Fashioned Butter. The community is invited to attend.

To complement the event, an exhibit entitled “What’s Cookin’: Culinary Artifacts of the 20th Century” will be on display in the Archives and Special Collections Room (Room 206) of the Cecil B. Word Learning Resources Center. The exhibit will run from November 1 through November 18 and then again from November 28 through December 9. It includes pieces that one would expect to see in a traditional kitchen in the early to mid-20th century. Contact Wilhelm for more information about this exhibit.
