People living on the shores of Lake Peipus invite everyone to sample culinary delights at the III Peipsi Food Street 175 km festival to be held on August 22 and 23.
Temporary open-air restaurants will open on 175 kilometers of roads following the shoreline. Visitors are offered everything that can be made from local ingredients, both traditional Peipsi foods and dishes with a more modern accent.
The organizers of the festival say that late August is the most bountiful time, with ripe vegetables, mushrooms and game in the woods, fish from the lake – all of it fresh, fragrant and juicy.
The festival will also see vessels offer pleasure cruises and food on the Emajõgi.
The restaurants will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on August 22 and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on August 23.
The Peipsi Food Street is organized by NGO Peipsimaa Kogukonnaköök and members of the Peipsi Toit network who are also behind the Rääbisefestival (Whitefish Festival) to be held on July 18, where sales points, workshops and activities will be scattered all over the Kasepää linear village in Jõgeva County.
