The annual Ferntree Gully Food Trail, run by the Ferntree Gully Village Traders Association, will be launched in August 2022.
This will be the second food trail run by the Traders Association and will include new activities and great deals at many of our local traders.
During Victoria’s Covid lockdowns, Anne Boyd was trying to think how to help the traders in Ferntree Gully and bring some foot traffic back to the precinct. How could we do this during a lockdown? A big event such as a Village Fair could not be staged. Anne thought that maybe a Food Trail would work. Knox City Council supported the idea and the Annual Food Trail was born.
This year the food trail will be similar in format. To join in the fun, you will pick up a Food Map, visit a participating trader and collect one of their stamps to benefit from their offer. A social media campaign on Instagram and Facebook will also be run.
We had 19 Traders join the trail last year – all with terrific offers such as discounted meals or a free drink. This year we are looking forward to welcoming both established and new traders to the trail to join in the fun.
