The four-day event started Thursday with the opening of their pop-up food shoppe at R/D, where they held a preview event showcasing and selling some of the artisan meats, cheeses, breads, jams and pickled vegetables that they will have over the weekend.

Here’s a look at some of their items

GreenWheel Food Hub’s IndieGoGo campaign

Along everything that GreenWheel Food Hub will be doing his weekend, one of their primary goals is to promote their IndieGoGo campaign to raise $15,000 to purchase a Combi Oven which they use to produce their “Greengoods” line of sauces, pickles, and preserves.

The campaign runs until Sept. 9, so if you would like to support GreenWheel Food Hub’s initiative to create value-added products from surplus produce from local farms, make a donation at
