Counting Down to Foodival

Transition Town Tooting has been running the Foodival since 2008, so this year is the 5th incarnation. Foodival connects local growers of vegetables and fruit to local restaurants and local people, aiming to tap into and share expertise around growing and making food as well as being a fun event for all the family. 

One of the key ideas behind the Foodival is that food in Tooting can be more sustainably produced.  Food grown and sourced locally has less of an impact on the planet with an almost negligible carbon footprint.  At next weekend's Foodival you will be able to eat a dish that has only travelled one or two "food miles" and then maybe on foot or the back of a bike! 

Don't forget to bring any fruit and veg that you can spare on Saturday.  You may even see your produce cooked on the spot by our Michelin background chef Volker!

On Sunday don't miss the chance to try locally grown food cooked by a variety of local restaurants while perusing the stalls and relaxing to an eclectic of musical and comedic entertainment at Tooting Market! 

Foodival 2012 promises to be even bigger and better (is that possible?) and we look forward to seeing you there.
