Farm-to-Fork Frederick Celebrates Locally Sourced Dining Options

From August 22 through September 1, 2014, Frederick restaurants, farms, and wineries will team up to offer locally grown dishes to diners.  In its second year, Farm-to-Fork Frederick is a dynamic 11-day culinary celebration of locally sourced foods.  During the 2014 promotion, eleven participating restaurants will offer a special menu featuring 70% Frederick County grown and raised farm goods. 

New this year, "Farm Fresh Overnight Stay" hotel packages are available. Participants can extend their stay at a special rate and have the opportunity to explore and sample at a nearby farm through the package.  

Agriculture has always been a significant part of the economy and social network of Frederick and the surrounding community. Founded in 1745, Frederick-Town sat near the center of a remarkably fertile and gently rolling landscape ripe for the production of grains, fruits, and livestock. By the middle of the 19th century, the town of Frederick was well established as a county seat and marketing center for Frederick County. This year, The City of Frederick's Department of Economic Development is a sponsor of Farm-to-Fork Frederick. 

Frederick is a dining destination for residents and visitors alike.  It is home to shops, restaurants, and businesses that provide the quality of life so many enjoy. 

The Farm-to-Fork Frederick event brings attention to the locally-sourced dining movement, and raises awareness that many Frederick restaurants source locally all year long.
