A WODONGA Harvest Festival will mark the opening of the recently revamped railway goods shed Saturday.
The shed, once used to store produce to be transported by rail, is coming back to life as a meeting place for food lovers to sample regional produce.
Quality seasonal produce from the region’s provedores, vineyards and farm gates will be available at a market day from 10am to 6pm.
Cooking demonstrations are also planned, with family eating areas provided.
Places Victoria general manager Nick Foa encouraged the community to take part in the day.
“The festival is an opportunity for people from the region to come along to Junction Place, step inside the new-look goods shed and enjoy some fantastic local produce,” he said.
A Foodie Film Festival will kick-off after the market day activities with a screening of Chocolat at the pop-up station cinema at Junction Place.
People can enter the festival through the former train station entry on Elgin Boulevard.
The events are part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival’s regional weekend.
