Posted in All Arts & Culture

On three Saturdays in September, the Root River Trail System will feature local food and cuisine in a new trail wide event, Taste of the Trail.

Taste of the Trail is similar to many “Taste of … “ events in many towns all over the Midwest. In this case, the towns along the trail system are focusing attention on food together over the three Saturdays in September.

Taste of the Trail is designed to show off the abundance of prepared food and food production in Southeast Minnesota. Each town along the trail will include its own growers, producers and restauranteurs, offering complimentary samples of their products. The towns will participate according to this schedule:

September 8: Lanesboro, Whalan, Peterson

September 15: Preston, Harmony

September 22: Rushford, Rushford Village, Houston

The hours on each Saturday are 10 am – 3 pm. Sampling will take place at participating businesses and/or at a central location in each town.

From lefse in Rushford, to homemade pie in Whalan, trail enthusiasts will find a diverse variety of delightful, palate-pleasing tastes.

For more information on specific food vendors, please go to This page will be updated continually as Taste of the Trail draws near.

Taste of the Trail is sponsored by Root River Trail Towns, an association of communities situated on the Root River Trail System, working together for the promotion and betterment of the trail.
