The Week Ahead: Friday, October 20 through Thursday, October 26, 2017
October 20, 2017
Eat hearty, sip selectively and schmooze happily this weekend at the returning Martha’s Vineyard Food & Wine Festival and the Local Wild Food Challenge spanning the weekend ahead, having already kicked off on Thursday and moving right on through to Sunday. Don’t think foraged food is your thing? Well think again, because how could you help but be tempted by dishes that spotlight local mushrooms, wild autumn fruits and greens and of course the Islands abundant seafood and game. As we move into the Week Ahead, hints of Halloween begin to surface at the MV Museum and Island libraries while scarecrows peer spookily from storefronts. If you haven’t found your perfect pumpkin yet, now’s the time to hunt one down at farm stands or grocery stores. Enjoy the Week Ahead!
