Sometimes we just need to do a side trip to our very own backyard. I’ve always loved the buzz, people, small businesses, and (of course) the food at food shows. This year’s Fraser Valley Food Show does all of that and more.
The 6th annual Fraser Valley Food Show will celebrate Oktoberfest with the 2nd Great Canadian Sausage Making Competition and 11th annual Master Chef Competition. With some good meat and food you’ll need a good pint or glass to pair with it; There will be a number of breweries and beer distributors participating in the popular Wine, Beer & Spirits Tasting Pavilion. In between the competitions, food celeb sightings and seminars, do check the aisles after aisles of over 100 exhibitors in the food & beverage industry – many offering products from the Fraser Valley.
This show is literally for everyone as on the other side of the food spectrum, the Gluten Free Living Show will showcase products and process for those who stray away from the carbs and glutens.
Pack the kids (or your friends) and go for a drive to Abbotsford to check out this comprehensive food show..and make sure you go there with an empty stomach and come back with a car full of goodies.
