The 2014 RIPE Dinner Celebration is shaping up to be our best one yet.

As VFM’s signature fundraiser, RIPE pairs farm-to-table chefs and restaurants with our farmers and producers to bring Vancouver an amazing evening of local food.

We’re thrilled to announce that Edible Canada will be presenting the main “feast” this year. This sit-down, family style meal will include food from 10+ market farms, meat producers, and prepared food artisans.

Returning to the RIPE line-up for 2014 are  Forage and Vij’s Rangoli, joined by Graze who will each be paired with a farmer to create appetizers for your munching pleasure during cocktail hour.

Along with our fantastic roster of farm vendors, RIPE 2014 will also feature our new breweries, distilleries, and wineries. Long Table Distillery and Odd Society Spirits will be on hand mixing seasonal cocktails, R & B Brewery plan to brew a signature RIPE keg for the event, and BC Wine Studio will present a selection of their Okanagan wines.
