' Dieppe celebrates the diversity of its local products and its  
cultural vitality

The City of Dieppe, in collaboration with Really Local Harvest and  
the Dieppe Arts and Culture Centre, is holding its second edition of  
the Harvest Festival, from October 15 to 17, 2010. Dieppe’s Harvest  
Festival is a community event promoting the quality and diversity of  
our local products and celebrating our community’s cultural vitality.

Friday, October 15:
Join us for the “Eating local foods” evening, starting at 8 p.m. at  
the Dieppe Arts and Culture Centre. This evening features Alisa  
Smith, coauthor of the book The 100-mile diet: A year of local eating  
and co-host of the The 100-mile challenge broadcasted last year on  
the Food Network (http://100mile.foodtv.ca/). She will talk about her  
experience of spending a whole year eating only products grown less  
than 100 miles from her apartment.

This evening will also feature Justin Guitard and Karine Godin, hosts  
of the morning show Bo matin on Bo-FM, from Monday to Friday, who  
will take up the challenge of eating only products from the Dieppe  
Market for a week. While this means no ketchup, restaurants, chips or  
peanut butter for an entire week, it does mean lots of fresh  
vegetables, tasty cheeses, delicious breads and juicy meats.

The event will end with a wine and cheese, prepared by Le Petit  
Cavalier’s chef, with products coming from Really Local Harvest  
members. This way, you can purchase your evening favourites the next  
morning at the Dieppe Market! Tickets will be on sale at the Dieppe  
Arts and Culture Centre starting October 1st, located at 331 Acadie  
Avenue. ($15 plus tax and service charges) Places are limited, so
