Supporting Abany Wine & Dine 10 Years and Counting!

We're so proud to support Albany Food and Wine Festival Wine and Dine for the Arts for the 10th year in a row! The festival is a fundraiser to support and preserve non-profit arts organizations in Albany and will be held January 17th through 19th.

This year, we're honored to present Saturday's Grand Gala Reception & Six-Course Vegetarian Menu, prepared by Chef Courtney Withey! Our partnership with Chef Courtney for the Grand Gala Reception's Vegetarian Menu is a natural one--she shares in Honest Weight's dedication to supporting, preparing, consuming, and promoting local and sustainable food.

Chef Courtney was blown away by Honest Weight's extensive bulk goods and fresh produce and found all but a few of the ingredients needed for her Indian-inspired culinary masterpiece at Honest Weight. We are so honored to donate our fresh, local, and delicious food for Chef Courtney to prepare in support of Wine Festival Wine & Dine for the Arts!

"I knew you guys had a local focus, but I had no idea just how much great local produce, cheese, and bulk goods you guys have! I love this place!"

- Chef Courtney Withey, Culinary Instructor, SUNY Schenectady
