If you've got great food, the Adirondack Museum needs you

BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE - Whether it's your raspberry jam is extraordinary or you grow fresh herbs, craft fresh mozzarella, or make the crunchiest granola this side of Cranberry Lake, the Adirondack Museum invites you to be part of three very special marketplaces that will celebrate local artisan food preparation this year.

The museum will introduce a new exhibit in 2010 called "Let's Eat! Adirondack."

It will celebrate food, drink, and the pleasures of eating in the Adirondack Park, sharing culinary stories and customs from Native American corn soup to farmer's markets.

In conjunction with the exhibit, the museum will hold three food-related events: "Picnic in the Park" on Saturday, July 10; "The Adirondacks are Cookin' Out" on July 29; and the annual "Harvest Festival" scheduled for Oct. 2 - 3, 2010.

The museum seeks Adirondack "foodies" to display and sell their products at one, two, or all three of the events. Products may include jams, jellies, syrups, honey, sauces, marinades, meat, eggs, dairy items, fruits and berries (fresh or dried), vegetables, herbs, condiments, cider, teas, candy, granola, and baked goods. Pre-packaged mixes and prepared foods are also welcome.

Marketplaces will be held from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. on the day of each event. 10' x 10' lawn booths will be available for $25 per event. For more information or an application, call 352-7311, ext. 115 or email jrubin@adkmuseum.org.
