Alert to any San Franciscans reading out there!
This Saturday the gorgeous Ferry Building Marketplace hosts the Good Food Awards. This event honors good, real food and the amazing people that work so hard to produce it. It is from 8 am – 2 pm and free to the public.
“For a long time, certifications for responsible food production and awards for superior taste have remained distinct—one honors social and environmental responsibility, while the other celebrates flavor. The Good Food Awards recognize that truly good food—the kind that brings people together and builds strong, healthy communities—contains all of these ingredients. We take a comprehensive view, honoring people who make food that is delicious, respectful of the environment, and connected to communities and cultural traditions.
The Good Food Awards were created through a collaboration of food producers, farmers, food journalists and independent grocers organized by Seedling Projects. This team has nominated judges from across the country to select 71 winners to be honored in a special ceremony hosted by Alice Waters in San Francisco. To showcase winners among the broader food-loving public, there will be a free Good Food Marketplace on January 15, 2011 at the Ferry Plaza Farmers market – under the front arcades of the Ferry Building from 8 AM to 2 PM. . Visitors to the marketplace will be invited to taste the award-winning foods surrounded by the spectacular Saturday Farmers’ Market at San Francisco’s iconic Ferry Building.”
