Winter'Garden'Harvest'Festival'Vendor'Application '

To'our'vendors, '

We'are'just'two'month'away'from'the'first'Winter'Garden'Harvest'Festival.''This'day? long'event'focuses'on'connecting'the'grass? roots'with'the'deep ? roots'of'our'local'food ? shed'by'giving' our'local'farmers,'urban'gardeners,'hand ? made'crafters,'food'vendors,' entrepreneurs'and'non ? profits'a'venue'to'showcase'the'valuable'products'and'services' they'provide'to'our'community. '

The'stage'is'set,'the'community'is'abuzz'with'anticipation'and'those'of'us'who'have'

been'at'the'plow'preparing'the'soil'for'this'festival'are'eager'to'show'off'our'vendors'to'

the'citizens'of'Winter'Garden'and'Central'Florida.'''

This'event'is'new'to'the'city'of'Winter'Garden'and'we'want'you'to'be'involved.''No,'we'

NEED'you'to'be'involved.''This'is'YOUR'event.''

"Without'community'support'of'our'creative'entrepreneurs,'our'unique'dinning'

establishments'and'our'small'growers'we'resign'ourselves'to'the'increasing'

homogenization'of'our'culture'and'food'supply."'

The'average'citizen'of'Winter'Garden'doesn't'realize'that'the'tomato'they'picked'up' from'the'local'grocery? store'is'often'a'cheap'imitation'from'out'of'state,'but'once'they' taste'the'locally'grown'heirloom'varieties'cooked'up'by'our'local'chefs'they'll'never' settle'for'a'gas'ripened'knock? off'again.''The'same'can'be'said'for'people's'department' store'purchases.'Once'a'festival ? goer'realizes'the'creative'bounty'that'exists'in'our'local' artisans'they'll'never'settle'for'wearing'anything'other'than'a'locally'crafted,'one'of'a' kind'original.' '

This'is'the'whole'point'of'creating'this'Harvest'Festival:'To'raise'awareness'about'the' incredible'variety'and'flavors'that'our'local'farms,'crafters'and'restaurateurs'produce' year'after'year.' '
