Newcastle Produce hosts fun food, wine event Friday

Here's a fun Friday idea for foodies: head to up Interstate 80 to Newcastle, where Newcastle Produce is offering cooking demonstrations, product samples and discounts.

The store is extending its hours to 8 p.m. every second and fourth Friday of summer to host "Summer Fun Fridays."

This Friday, in-house Chef Chelsea Federwitz will host a free salsa making demonstration and Snow's Citrus Court will hold a food tasting and is offering 15 percent off its products. Customers can also enjoy a wine tasting featuring Bonitata Boutique Wines, according to the store's website.

Participants also will be entered into a drawing for door prizes.

And for those with a free Friday (lucky!), author Alicia Funk, who wrote "Living Wild: Gardening, Cooking and Healing with Native Plants of the Sierra Nevada" will be at Newcastle Produce from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. to offer samples of recipes made with native food plants, the website states.

Newcastle Produce is located at 9230 Cypress Street. For directions and more information, click here.
