In classical mythology, the cornucopia was a horn broken off from Amalthaea, a goat who raised the god Zeus, and whoever possessed it had access to an endless supply of fruits, vegetables, and presumably micro-brews. You may not be able to get your hands on that horn, but you can go to the Food & Garden Festival at Fairchild Botanical Gardens.
The attractions are so bountiful that they overflowed into both days of the weekend. Why limit yourself to just one? A farmer's market will be selling local and organic fruits and vegetables. Chefs will be participating in on-going culinary demonstrations, and lectures like "Eating Naturally in Your Environment" and "Vermiculture: The Art of Composting with Worms" run back to back in the Garden House. In short, it's every eater's and grower's mythological dream.
