The Yuma Fresh Vegetable Association’s (YFVA) vegetable tasting program, Farm Fresh Forks, starts Jan. 9 at four restaurants in the Winter Vegetable Capital of the World - Yuma, Ariz.
Restaurant customers can taste three different vegetables each week prepared in unique ways at the Patio Restaurant & Bar, The Garden Café, Market Grill Steak & Seafood, and River City Grill.
Farm Fresh Forks began last year, and has grown in part due to a USDA grant. The 12-week program highlights a different grower-shipper each week and three locally-grown products.
“We are very excited to be kicking off our Farm Fresh Forks season,” says YFVA President Steve Alameda who grows vegetables in Arizona and California. “It makes perfect sense to taste and experience vegetables in the Winter Vegetable Capital of the World. It doesn't get more authentic that that.”
