NEW HAVEN — An unlikely duo of recent Vermont transplants is teaming up to put on a first-of-its-kind event.
Christine Snell and Maura Lester are organizing the first annual New Haven Farm and Food Festival, a celebration of all the local food producers in the town. The festival will be held Oct. 20 at Tourterelle, the restaurant on Route 7 that Snell owns with her husband, Bill.
Snell and Lester came up with the idea back in July, when discussing how many other towns in Addison County have fall events, but New Haven does not.
