Slideshow and Recap: Garlic Fest




Despite a rainy Saturday-morning start, this weekend's Garlic Fest on Shaker Square was a big hit, complete with live entertainment, arts & crafts, kids' activities, and lots and lots of garlic. A preview brunch was delicious, with farm fresh eggs, tasty sweet-potato dinner rolls, locally made sausage, and home fries thick with minced garlic. Garlic fries from Spice of Life were awesome. Garlic ice cream from Mitchell Brothers Ice Cream was better than you might guess. And like us, most attendees went home with enough heads of garlic to last until next spring's scapes start to arrive. This was the second year for this North Union Farmers Market fund raiser and, with garlic's growing status as the ingredient du jour, the theme and the timing couldn't have been better. — Elaine T.
