October Program to focus on “Demystifying and Sourcing Seafood”


Sourcing seafood in today’s market, farm raised vs. wild seafood, and seafood sustainability will be among the topics discussed by speakers at Slow Food Buffalo Niagara’s free October program focusing on “Demystifying and Sourcing Seafood.”

The “Last Monday of the Month” program on Monday, October 28, will start promptly at 7 p.m. at Farmers & Artisans, 4557 Main St., Snyder, at the corner of Bernhardt Drive.

Our speakers will be Julie Blackman and Dennis Henesey.

This is guaranteed to be an informative evening. The program will run approximately an hour with a brief conversation period afterward.
