Local Organic vs Conventional Produce – with Music!

July’s final Music (and Food) in the Park event with Gold Star Park will take place next Thursday (7/28) at 7PM.

Bring a blanket or chairs and enjoy the music of Railroad Fever. We’ll also have a selection of local fruit and veggies for you to sample.

The music and veggie/fruit tasting start at 7pm. Gold Star Park is located on Wharton Street, between 6th and 7th Streets. (Click here for a link to a map.)

The Co-op will be providing samples of in-season fruits and vegetables for everyone to taste. Bring your friends, bring your neighbors, bring your kids – this is a great way to become familiar with what is in-season in our region and maybe try something new.

We will also feature a blind “Taste-Test” pitting Local/Organic versus conventional produce. Do you think you can tell the difference? (Hint: you probably can!)

Special thanks to Friends of Goldstar Park for arranging the music, Pennsylvania Horticulture Society for providing the grant to purchase the produce, and to Birchtree Catering for sourcing and cutting up the veggies and fruit.
