This year (July 2011) the name of the Redwood Acres Fair changed to the Humboldt Made Fair and the focus is on products Made in Humboldt. Buy Fresh Buy Local representative Michelle Wyler and the Humboldt County Economic Development Department’s Jacqueline Debets teamed up to tell us what was happening in this new fair. One new element that I found intriguing was a Taste of Place dinner featuring local foods — so easy to do in Humboldt County because there are very few things we don’t have available here (of course July is tricky since we still didn’t have the heat for all those warm weather crops).
Hopefully — this concept will catch on in a big way in the future.
