Tom-Yum Festival Supports Local Agriculture

Posted: Updated:

Saturday was a day of food and fun in downtown Charlottesville for the Tom-Yum Festival.     

The event at the City Market was part of the Tom-Tom Festival.

It included hands-on workshops, culinary demos, and of course delicious food.

Organizers from Albemarle County say the Tom-Yum Festival was a way to support agribusiness.

"The county is pleased to support our local community agriculture and food industries, this is an important effort to help connect our community with our food producers," said Susan Stimart of Albemarle County.

People got a chance to learn about urban food growing, composting, and rainwater harvesting.
