This year's all-star line-up includes Alba Vineyard, Cape May Winery, Hopewell Valley Vineyards, Unionville and Vineyards. World renowned feature wineries include Robert Mondavi and Napa Valley. In staying true to the Foodshed mission, the event will also feature an unparalleled line-up of some of New Jersey's most reputable chefs who will be presenting cooking demonstrations, lectures and samples. The line-up continues with local celebrity cookbook authors as well as farmers who will all be on hand in the demo tent presenting information related to locally produced food and farming in northern New Jersey.
