Each week we meet up with Katie Hershfelt of Cultivate Events as she chats with farmers, chefs and shoppers at the Santa Barbara Certified Farmers’ Market.
This week she met up with Noelle Buben from Visit Santa Barbara and Rachel Low from Santa Barbara Adventure Company about Epicure.SB, a month-long culinary celebration in October.
As part of the festival, Santa Barbara Adventure Company decided to make the market an adventure in and of itself. Every Saturday this month, a guide takes people through the market to pick up lunch fixings, through Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone to sample wines and finally to Stearns Wharf to make a picnic lunch.
“It really is a sensory experience, just as kayaking through a sea cave is a sensory experience. It really connects you to a place,” says Low.
