Harvest festival in Roosevelt Sunday

The second annual Roosevelt Community Farmers Market Harvest Festival on Sunday will celebrate the end of the 2011 season with a cook-off fundraiser (judging time, 2 p.m.), vendors, raffles, games and other family activities.

The festival, hosted by the Roosevelt Community Revitalization Group, will be held 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the farmers market in the parking lot of the Roosevelt-Freeport Health Clinic (380 Nassau Rd.).

The market was created last summer to provide fresh locally grown produce to a community with obesity, diabetes and high-cholesterol problems. Roosevelt students, community supervisors and veterans have been selling the fresh produce.

For more information, call Clara Gillens 516-378-8132 or Jessica Kim at 516-362-9943.
