Overused foodie jargon like “artisan,” “organic” and “farm-to-Fork” should have been abolished from the English language years ago, when it seemed like everyone jumped on the healthy food fare bandwagon. However, this weekend’s Farm-to-Fork Festival at Capitol Mall Greens promises you will be treated to some of the best products and food samples in the region and then some. And while the event is free to the public, you will most certainly need cash or credit cards on hand to pay for libations and eats. Expect lots of beer and wine vendors, the obligatory kids’ zone and more demonstrations that you can count. From Azteca Street Tacos to Crystal Basin Bistro, Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op to Passione Pizza, there will be something for everyone. My personal favorite, Insight Coffee Roasters, will also be on hand alongside the equally impressive offerings of San Francisco Bay Coffee. Expect to hear live music from Tyler Rich, Brett Dennen and Stroke 9 while you indulge and take selfies and, most importantly, the occasional food porn photos to share on Instagram. The festival starts at 11 a.m. and ends not-so-promptly at 6 p.m. For more info check out Farmtofork.com
