As part of the month long Fiesta de Camotes celebration, we are also an event sponsor and will have a booth at FIESTA Hendersonville on Sunday, September 24 from noon – 6 p.m.  We will be handing out bilingual recipe cards featuring dishes created by the restaurants participating in #FiestaDeCamotes as well as samples featuring NC’s state vegetable.  If you happen to watch Univision or HOLA NC, you just might see one of our commercials!

This new project, is our way of reaching out to our Spanish speaking sweet potato lovers.  As we move further along, more recipes as well as our web page will have Spanish translations.  Check back to see what we have available!  Translation,  Fiesta de Camotes Campaign, and projects are funded by a grant received from United States Department of Agriculture- Agriculture Marketing Service (USDA-AMS) Specialty Crop Block Grant Program.
