Harford County Public Library Foundation hosts Taste of Harford, a buy local, taste local event that celebrates the diverse flavors and skills of the Harford County agricultural and culinary communities, on Sunday, May 19, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Vignon Manor Farm, 425 Darlington Road in Havre de Grace.

Taste of Harford showcases local restaurants and agricultural producers, including farmers, breweries and wineries. Each of the participants will provide guests with a “taste” of a specialty item determined by the agricultural producer or restaurant. All participants are encouraged to incorporate locally sourced ingredients in their recipes. The event will also feature a farmer’s market, live music, art and more.

More than 50 restaurants and farms are anticipated to participate in the festivities. For an updated listing, visit HCPLonline.org.

Guests at Taste of Harford can show their support for their favorite local food and beverage businesses by casting votes for Harford County’s “Best Bite” in various categories.

In addition, the Restaurant Association of Maryland and Maryland Department of Agriculture will award a “Golden Ticket” to compete at the World Food Championships in Indianapolis to a restaurant participant featuring blue catfish as its “Best Bite.”

Also taking place during Taste of Harford, Master Chef John Shields of Gertrude’s Chesapeake Kitchen and Hastler will be taping segments for an upcoming episode of “Chesapeake Farm & Bay to Table.”

Partners of Harford County Public Library Foundation’s Taste of Harford are Visit Harford!, Harford County Farm Bureau, Harford County Health Department, Harford County Chamber of Commerce, Restaurant Association of Maryland and Maryland Department of Agriculture.

Sponsors of Taste of Harford include Klein’s ShopRite of Maryland, ThinkBig Networks and Harford’s Heart. For an updated listing, visit HCPLonline.org.

Tickets to Taste of Harford cost $40 per person or two for $75 and are available by visiting HCPLonline.org. The event is expected to be a sell out, so guests are encouraged to buy tickets in advance.

Funds raised at Taste of Harford will support Library programs, resources and services beyond the County’s Library budget, encompassing vital initiatives like the Rolling Reader, refurbishment of the Bel Air, Joppa and Aberdeen branches, and the Summer Reading program.
