Sunday To-Do: Jewish Food Festival

Posted By on Mon, May 17, 2010 at 8:52 AM

Just the names of different Jewish desserts sound like exaggerated, Homer Simpson drooling: rugelach (a nutty, cinnamon strudel roll), hamantashen (a triangular, fruit-filled cookie). The annual, day-long festival of the best food Judaism has to offer returns to the River Market Pavilion. With tables upon tables of latkes, corned beef, brisket, pastrami and bagels (not to mention a wide selection of arts and crafts and seven Hebrew bands, including the Meshugga Klezmer Band) this yearly market is a rare chance to get a thorough taste of some savory traditional food not usually available in our state. An early bird breakfast is open to the public at 8:30 a.m. while the festival officially opens at 10 a.m. Proceeds go to various charities supported by the Jewish Federation of Arkansas.
