What a fantastic Fair! Records were broken all over the place, both in attendance and in the Common Kitchen. At Saturday night’s supper, we served over 600; at Sunday’s breakfast, 280; and Thursday is now the new Friday as we served almost 300 at dinner. In total the Common Kitchen served 4,400 meals from setup through breakdown.

Sourcing food gets easier and easier as the number of certified farmers grows.

If we forgot anyone’s name or you didn’t fill out a donor slip at the kitchen, please let the office know and we will correct the error. If anyone would like to join the list of donors who support the Fair’s Common Kitchen and other MOFGA events with a donation of food, please contact the office or email Bill Whitman at
