VICTORIA – With less than six weeks to go until the 14th annual Vancouver Island Feast of Fields, the festival is shaping up to promise something for everyone as producers, restaurants, wineries and breweries confirm and menus are set.

“On September 18, the gates to Marley Farm will open and people will have the opportunity to spend the afternoon on a beautiful farm, sampling the best cuisine Vancouver Island has to offer,” said Melanie Banas, event coordinator. “Right now, we have over 55 confirmed participants, with more coming in every day, including a handful who are new to Feast of Fields this year.”

After recently opening a store in downtown Victoria, Fruition Paletas will join Feast of Fields for the first time to help festivalgoers beat the heat with their fresh fruit popsicles and ice cream bars.

Victoria’s newest brewpub, Moon Under Water, will serve samples of their session ales. As well, Intrigue Wines, a small winery from the Okanagan Valley started by Gray Monk’s co-winemaker Roger Wong in 2008, and Kelowna’s The View Winery, which first began as an apple orchard five generations ago, will at the event.

There are two Victoria eateries participating in Field of Fields for the first time: Choux Choux Charcuterie on Fort Street and Kulu Restaurant located in Gladstone Square in Fernwood.

“As one of the original organizers of Feast of Fields, I am so proud of everything that has happened in regards to food and wine on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands,” said Cheryl Schultz of Cheryl’s Gourmet Pantry. “Not only can people now enjoy local food when dining out, but can also find local produce for home as well.”

Feast of Fields takes place on Sunday, September 18 from 1-5 p.m. on Marley Farm in Saanichton, located at 1831 Mount Newton X Road. Tickets are $85 for adults, $15 for children ages 7 to 12, and free for children under 6. Tickets can be purchased online at online at www.feastoffields.com or in person at Muffet and Louisa.
