This weekend: WJFF's Foodstock at the Villa Roma

Food, wine, and song will fill the Tennis Building at the Villa Roma Resort in Callicoon this Saturday as the fourth annual Foodstock Fine Food and Wine Festival brings together over 60 purveyors of fine comestibles. Local farmers, winemakers, bakers and chefs will bring their finest to the tasting festival for four hours of community-spirited tasting and browsing. From fudge sauce to garlic vinegar, from gourmet pasta and dairy to locally-produced woodworking and fresh flowers, this is a great opportunity to sample the creativity of Sullivan County chefs and producers, while grooving to the sounds of Poison Love with Dan Brinkerhoff.

Foodstock raises funds for independent community radio station WJFF, where a dispute between longtime station volunteers and its nine-member board of directors came to a rolling boil this spring, resulting in a thorough shakeup of management and board membership. Through the chaos, one thing stayed crystal clear: WJFF is a community asset that is fiercely adored, with a cadre of volunteers and listeners deeply invested in making it the best that it can be.

So come out and celebrate new leadership and independent voices -- and the edible bounty of Sullivan County, of course.

Foodstock Fine Food and Wine Festival. Villa Roma Resort, 356 Villa Roma Road, Callicoon. Saturday, 5.11.2013, 11am-3pm. Admission $20 with wine tasting, $15 without. For more information, see
