Flavors of the Valley is the Upper Valley’s annual local food tasting expo, now in its 19th year.

It’s a place to meet new and old friends and celebrate spring.

Flavors of the Valley 2020 was on Sunday, April 19!

Flavors of the Valley 2020 was on April 19.  You can still be part of the flavors of the valley every day! Contact Flavors vendors (below) to join a Community Supported Agriculture farm, find places to buy their unique products, visit their stores, find their farm stands, see them at the farmers’ market, make special arrangements to purchase half a pig, order cookies, milk, coffee, gelato, cheese, and so much more.

Your shopping choices through the year make a big difference for our local farms. Add a little more local to your shopping. Every little bit adds up, and helps keep our communities thriving and resilient.

Vital Communities has been monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 concern. Due to the size and nature of the event, and out of care for our community, we have decided to cancel Flavors of the Valley 2020.
