I loved the delicious Krause Berry Farm locally roasted corn on the cob smothered in their own blueberry butter; chatting it up with David of Powell Street Brewery then tasting Lolitas Ground beef and chorizo Tacos; a couple of glasses of the Salt Spring Coffee Cold Brew had awakened my senses for the rest of the afternoon, the white bean spread from Whole Foods was delicious, as was the Angus Beef Brisket from Chef Allesandro at ARC dining ; Chef Karen of Graze Vegetarian Restaurant was all smiles; the Exile Bistro vegetables were colourful and The Kolach Flatbread from Terra Breads topped with pistachio almond granola was outstanding.
