Find Your Fall Food Fest

The Woodbury Fall Arts festival comes to Railroad Ave. in Woodbury this Saturday!

Well, the list of foodie events over at Jersey Bites isn’t South Jersey-centric enough for my taste, so I went ahead and compiled a Franken-list of South Jersey Fall Foodie Stuff with the help of Jersey Bites, FestivalNet  , Google, and various Jersey goons that report directly to me.

1.   1st Annual Woodbury Fall Arts Festival

Sept. 29: 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Craft Beer Garden, Wine and Cheese, Art of Spice Chili Cook-off, Writer’s Corner, Performing Arts stage, vendors, special guests…. a whole lot of variety.

This is my foodie-favorite this weekend because it features quite a bit of DIY food, including a session on “Preserving the Art of Home Canning.” And, remarkably, it’s right down the street from me.

2. Sea Isle City Harborfest

Sept. 29: 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Lots of seafood, a clam-eating contest, vendors market, “a blessing of the fleet by local religious leaders,” and participating local eateries.
