On September 17th, City Harvest hosted their first annual Brooklyn Local event. Artisan food vendors from all over Brooklyn came to showcase their delicious and handmade delights. Local Brooklyn brewery Sixpoint along with several other beer and wine vendors kept us from going thirsty. What I found most compelling was the event space. The Brooklyn Tabacco Warehouse is this charming open air venue reminisant of medieval times. In the 1870s it was used as a tobacco customs inspection center, and saved from demolition in 1998.
I had the great opportunity to volunteer with City Harvest in the kids area and decorate cookies all morning! The cookies and decorating supplies were provide by The Good Batch.
Here is a link to all the participating vendors. And some of my favorites!
I took some fun pictures of the kiddie creations! Each cookie was very expressive of each kid, it was like cookie psychology. And I could pick out a few that would probably resemble the mess that I would have made as a kid!
