Celebratory event has boutique wine and gourmet food

Mushroom sellersMargin's Mushrooms will be selling their wares.

The Pearl Beach Food and Wine Fare will be held at the Pearl Beach Memorial Hall from 10am to 5pm on September 28.

The Fare is a celebratory event marking the 90th anniversary of the Pearl Beach Progress Association, according to communications officer Ms Lynne Lillico.

She said the Fare was now in its 12th year and doubled as both an Association fundraiser and a day out for locals who enjoyed boutique wines and gourmet foods.

Ms Lillico said: Well be welcoming Catherine Vale Wines, Old Inn Road Vineyard and, new this year, Milbrook Estate Winery offering a variety of wines to sample and purchase.

Popular food producers set to showcase their range of fresh gourmet products include Little Creek Cheese, Crooked Creeks, Laguna Olives, Sweet As Handmade Chocolates and Wollombi Honey, Ms Lillico said. Other vendors taking part in the Fare are Evas Patisserie, Chillicious Gourmet Foods, Laguna Lavender and local producer, Margins Mushrooms.

The Two Turkeys will also provide gourmet refreshments on the back deck. A gourmet hamper filled with produce and wine generously donated by our exhibitors will be raffled with proceeds toward the Memorial Hall maintenance and upkeep, Ms Lillico said.
