Foodies can feast on some amazing local food and drink this October thanks to an innovative new collaboration.
A half dozen local food and drink vendors have teamed up to offer an Oktoberfest-themed box of goodies that is sure to lift spirits and satisfy taste buds.
“I wanted to bring something fun for people to enjoy during these trying times while also raising awareness of the great producers in the area that might not be as well known,” said Arisbe Castellanos of Mi Cocina, a local producer of authentic Mexican style salsas.
Mrs. Castellanos said the reception to the food box has been quite positive. The convenience of getting a variety of amazing products in one package is hard to resist.
“Customers are telling me that they are looking forward to trying all the goods in the package,” she added. “It’s definitely convenient and fitting to the season.”
The Oktoberfeast package is $68 and includes:
– 6 cans of beer from Cornwall’s Rurban Brewing

– 1 package of Oktoberfest sausages from W. Leitch Organics (4 in each package)
