Salida, CO: Central Colorado Foodshed Alliance (CCFA) announces ShedFest! A farm-to-fork feast celebrating the harvest, local farmers, and artisans in our 100-mile foodshed. A community Feast for a Cause! Come out for one last outdoor celebration before the cold hands of Old Man Winter usher us back inside.
