In a time when much of what we eat is processed, packaged and placed on a grocery-store shelf, it’s easy to forget where our food comes from. Burlington-area gourmands get back to basics at the Co-op Food Fest, hosted by City Market/Onion River Co-op. More than 40 farmers and producers set up shop at Union Station to connect with customers and offer a cornucopia of samples — for starters, think fruits, vegetables, meat, eggs, cider, kombucha, coffee, tea, baked goods, soaps and tinctures. With live acoustic music by Hard Scrabble, face painting and chair massages, browsing for food never felt so good.
