Metro Vancouver Feast

Metro Vancouver Feast of Fields

Virtual Event: Sunday, September 12, 2021, 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Host Farm: Research and Education Seed Farm

Box Collection or Pick-up: Saturday, September 11, 2021, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm, hosted by YVR Prep and Orange Toque Delivery

This year we will be bringing Feast of Fields directly to you for one of the most unique home-dining experiences of the season.

Specially catered harvest-style boxes containing everything you need to assemble a ready-to-eat gourmet feast for two will be ready for pick-up from YVR Prep or available for home delivery through Orange Toque Delivery on Saturday, September 11th between 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm. Inside, you will find the very best seasonal ingredients local farmers, ranchers, and foods artisans have to offer including delicious bites prepared by BC’s top chefs; tasty libations from local vintners, brewers, and distillers; and elegant accoutrements to set the tone for an afternoon of celebration. A limited number of exclusive Local Food Champion boxes will be available containing supplemental bites, luxury beverages, and sophisticated additions.

Our virtual celebration will bring together chefs, producers, and foodies from across Metro Vancouver. You will hear how ingredients were grown and sourced, and learn how to plate your bites directly from some of the region’s top chefs. Together, we will enjoy a virtual tour of our Research and Education Seed Farm in Abbotsford, hear from guest speakers, and connect with farm and city folks who also believe in the importance of quality, sustainable food. The rest of the afternoon is yours to continue celebrating what the region has to offer!

Box Sales

The auction for our Metro Vancouver event closed September 7, 2021 at 9:00 PM PDT.

Why 32auctions?

With this year’s virtual event format, our status as a registered charity limits us in how we can provide alcohol to our guests. 32auctions is how we can fulfill our event requirements while also ensuring you get to taste the best local vintners, distillers, and brewers have to offer.

‘Bid’ or ‘Buy Now’

Like a standard auction, you will be required to either ‘bid’ on a box or ‘buy now.’ By purchasing a box, you will secure your spot at our Metro Vancouver Feast event and receive an invoice immediately. If you choose to bid, you will have to wait until the auction is closed to confirm your attendance.

We encourage you to purchase your box right away so you won’t be out-bid! If you see that there is a current bid on one of the boxes, we encourage you to select a listing with no active bids.

Box Collection/Delivery

You will be able to collect your boxes from YVR Prep or have them delivered to your home through Orange Toque Delivery on Saturday, September 11th between 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm. Box collection will be Covid-safe and contactless, if necessary.

Location: A6 5279 Still Creek Avenue, Burnaby, BC, V5C 5V1
