Drawing's closed! Winner's been emailed!
The contest is closed and we have a winner. Congratulations, Melissa!
This Sunday is the Honest Weight Local Harvest Festival from noon to 4 pm in Albany's Washington Park. More than 30 local food producers and restaurants will be offering samples and selling their products, chefs will do demonstrations, and WEXT's Laura Glazer will be hosting a music lineup that includes Barons in the Attic, Secondhand Roses, and Katie Hammon.
The Local Harvest Festival is a fun way to showcase the locally-produced bounty we've got here in the Capital Region. And a handful of Harvest Fest Vendors have offered to fill up a shopping bag for one lucky AOA winner. The winner gets:
Gatherer's Gourmet Granola: 15 3.15 oz (single serving) bags of three flavors of Gatherer's Gourmet Granola: Chipmunks Choice, Squirrel Bait, and Fox's Fancy.
3 Chicks and a P: A 3 pack of salsas and tapenades -- your choice, from 3 Chicks and a P.
Bettie's Cakes: Gift Card for a 4-pack of cupcakes from Bettie's Cakes.
Our Daily Eats: Thai chili peanuts, rosemary maple mix and maple crunch granola from Our Daily Eats.
Bake for You: A dozen Eloise cookies (named after the apartments) made with oats, white chips, cinnamon, and apples, from Bake for You.
Honest Weight Food Co-op: A $25 gift card from Honest Weight
We'll draw one comment at random. The winner can pick up their bounty by visiting the vendors at Sunday's Harvest Fest. Bring a big bag. To enter, just answer the following question in the comment section of this post:
What are you hoping to harvest this fall?
That could be anything: tomatoes, time, an opportunity, whatever -- you name it.

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
