It is a sad day for fig-lovers in the Central Valley! There will no longer be a Fig Fest at Fresno State on a really hot day in August. (I know, redundant) No more boxes of fresh figs to buy and scrumptious fig dishes to taste. But keep your eyes peeled for several other events: http://www.californiafigs.com/
According to one Fig Seller, a lot of figs were sold last night at the Clovis Farmer’s Marker.
And the lucky people in San Diego are getting a Fig Fest- see the link above for details.
Rest assured, we will continue to grow and buy and eat fresh figs, even without the Fresno State Fig Fest.
