Feast of Fields 2019 will be held on Aug. 25 at Snowdon House Gourmet & Gifts in North Saanich.

With wine glass and napkin in hand, guests of the gourmet wandering harvest festival are invited to meander around the fields at 1890 Mills Rd. from 1 to 4 p.m., tasting the local creations, listening to live music and bidding on silent auction items.
