On the heels of a successful farmers market debut at the Washington D.C. Grace Jamaican jerk festival, Farm Up Jamaica, a non-profit organization, will continue its mission to raise funds to reduce the amount of import foods into Jamaica, while creating employment opportunities in agriculture for young Jamaicans who need most.
This time it will be held in the New York tri-state area, at the Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival at Roy Wilkins park on Sunday July 22, 2018.
Farm Up has partnered with the Grace Jamaican Jerk festival who understands that Caribbean people need to feel a sense of “home away from home” every so often. The partnership promises to bring the most comprehensive Caribbean culinary experience in the world.
Augmenting produce to the roster of cuisine and allowing the chefs and attendees access to authentic Caribbean produce, herbs & spices, will make the Jerk Fest the only place to be on Sunday June 22nd.
“Tasting the best Caribbean flavors at an event is one thing, having access to the raw ingredients to re-create the experience at home is another,” says Dr. Julius Garvey, son of the late Marcus Garvey and Director of Strategic Research And Development for Farm Up Jamaica Ltd.
