Local vendors come together for Salt & Smoke Festival


Firsthand Foods, a meat wholesaler located in Durham, has not only supplied the local pasteurized pork for the festival for the past few years but also provides Acme with the top-quality meat they serve to their customers daily. 

“Customers like Acme make it possible for local farmers to be in business because of their commitment every week to source locally,” Firsthand Foods co-founder and co-CEO Jennifer Curtis said. 

Curtis said people want to know where their food comes from, and the festival is great opportunity to have fun and engage with their customers.

Included in the ticket price are two drink tokens for festival attendees to enjoy two Top of the Hill Organic Spirits beverages at the festival, or to use at different vendors.  

TOPO has been a partner for the festival since 2013 because Chef Callaghan supports local spirits, Esteban McMahan, an employee at Top of the Hill Distillery, said. He is one of the spirit vendors who will serve at the festival. 

Tickets to the event are expected to sell out by the end of the day on Friday. They range from $85 to experience the food, drinks and entertainment, to $60 to enjoy two beverages and the show. 

There will be back-to-back shows by Ellis Dyson & The Shambles, Old Well Wishers and Boom Unit Brass Band. 

“We’re going to have a great time … We’re looking forward to the food and the people were great (last year),” said Brannon Bollinger, a member of Boom Unit Bass Band.
