Food on the Rocks

Along with the music at Folk on the Rocks, there was food. Glorious food. It seems these days food goes well with any event, so why should this one be any different.

Of course you know about Ecology North’s Rent-a-Plate operation that took place once again at the festival. Approximately 200 plastics plates circulated over the weekend.

Once you got your plate there were several different food vendors you had to choose from. There were many different types of food to choose from, as well. From you basic cheeseburger to Thai food, pizza to hot dogs, chicken wraps to Armenian food. There were smoothies, coffee and lemon-aid to drink as well the Fry Guy and Ice Cream truck were there.

For those who wanted to try an authentic northern dish, there was fresh White Fish with a corn cob.

Needless to say there was tons of food and everyone must have been fed well, budget depending. Speaking to some vendors, they told me that they were seeing lines like they hadn’t seen in 5 years. Partly I think, the cloudy weather drove people to eat more.

Did you try any of the food out at Folk on the Rocks, what was your favourite dish? Mine would have been the Beef on a Bun in support of the Arthritis Society.
