The Portland Press Herald reports on food options at this year’s Common Ground Fair, coming up this weekend, Sept. 23-25, at the MOFGA fairgrounds in Unity. Fair vendors and demonstrators always serve up a wide selection of delectable and organically raised foods. This year, gluten-free options will be available at the new Tic Tac Taco stand.

“Run by Juliana Hoffmann, who recently moved back to Maine from New York City, where she owned a health food cafe, the new booth will serve three varieties of gluten-free tacos. Two – the black bean and the winter squash – will be vegan, and the third features pulled chicken.

Piled on scratch-made corn tortillas, the tacos will include a toasted pumpkin seed and red pepper pesto; a choice of salsa; a cabbage, carrot and onion slaw; and an option of cheese.

“Everything will be made from scratch, including the salsas,” said Hoffman, who grew up on the organic Blueberry Hill Farm in Jefferson, where her parents still live.”

The Common Ground Fair schedule includes a number of food-related presentations, including a keynote talk on Saturday by MOFGA executive director Russell Libby who will speak on “Putting the Pieces Together – Our Next Food System.”
