Annual ‘Harvest Fest’ Showcases Seasonal Produce and Products with
Interactive Activities for All Ages
Despite the still sizzling summer weather, fall has officially begun at Lucky’s Market stores throughout Florida. To celebrate the changing season, and showcase some of Florida’s most popular fall produce and seasonal products, the specialty grocer will host its annual ‘Fall Into Something Different Harvest Fest’ on Saturday, October 20, from 11 am – 4 pm, at each of its Florida locations. All event activities are free to the public.
All Florida locations are stocking up on everything fall-flavored, including 15 varieties of apples, several types of squash, berries, pumpkin spice flavored cheeses, fall florals, and seasonal beer and wine, including an especially ghoulish ‘Trick” (red) or “Treat” (white) wine.
Lucky’s Market stores will offer:
· Kids activities including: in-store pumpkin patch (great for photos), kids costume contest, crafts and coloring
· Samplings of various apple varieties, apple cider, and a slice of Lucky’s special Apple Pie with Handmade Cinnamon Whipped Cream
· Seasonal beer and wine tastings for the grown-ups
· Unique entertaining ideas, including DIY charcuterie plates, fall food decorations, desserts and Lucky’s made-from-scratch dishes from the store’s Kitchen.
“We genuinely believe that good food shouldn’t be a luxury, it should be a right,” said Brooke Armstrong, Florida spokesperson for Lucky’s Market. “Some of the year’s most delicious produce and spices are harvested throughout Florida in the fall, and we are so excited to showcase these items in a fun and tasty way during Harvest Fest.”
In addition to the abundance of in-store seasonal specialty items, Lucky’s Market also has published a number of fall recipes on its website, featuring everything from Pumpkin Fudge to Holiday Harvest Salad to a Zombie Apocalypse Cocktail. Some of these prepared items will be featured at Harvest Fest on October 20 and will be available in the prepared foods Kitchen department at the store.
About Lucky’s Market Lucky’s Market was started in 2003 by two chefs, Trish and Bo Sharon, when they bought a convenience store in Boulder, CO. The Sharons shared a vision of creating a grocery store chain where food lovers like themselves would want to shop, with organic, natural and local foods sold at affordable prices with genuine personal service. Today, those goals remain the hallmarks of the Lucky’s mission, which is to promote healthy eating for generations to come.
Lucky’s Market currently operates more than a dozen locations throughout Florida, with plans to nearly double its footprint in the state over the next two years.
