Brooklyn Food & Travel Expo -- April 14
Here’s an event you won't want to miss if you’re in the NYC area – the 2nd Annual EscapeMaker.com Local Food & Travel Expo.
On Saturday April 14, from Noon-5pm more than 50 getaway destinations, from counties to towns to local farms and bed & breakfasts within a day's drive or train ride of NYC will be exhibiting at One Hanson Place in Fort Greene in Brooklyn (where the Brooklyn Flea takes place). You’ll learn about what's hot in sustainable travel and sample local wines and foods upstairs, then go downstairs to sample even more goodies at the “Made in Brooklyn” Marketplace in the bank vault. (This was the former Williamsburgh Savings Bank Building). I’ll bet you never thought of Brooklyn as an agri-tourism escape. Attendees can win fifty overnight getaway prizes; participate in educational workshops about canoeing, sustainable tourism, culinary tours, and hiking; and enjoy food demonstrations throughout the day. Use “escapemakerfam12” for $3 off your $13 ticket: http://www.escapemaker.com/travelexpo. Kids 10 and under are free. The full schedule of events shows it all.
