Horsefeathers to host food week celebration

 National Food Celebration Week beings Oct. 22. To kick off this year’s celebration, the Frizlen Group has organized an event at 346 Connecticut St., known as the “Horsefeathers Building,” where merchants will have a place to sell their food and people will have a chance to buy and try new foods.
 The Frizlen Group recently acquired the Horsefeathers Building and is in the process of rehabilitating it. The plan is to convert the space to accommodate living and office spaces as well as a farmer’s market. This historic building, which was once vacant and used only as a warehouse, will hold its first event in years.
 “We plan on putting a Foodmaker’s Market on the main floor and basement,” said Karl Frizlen, president of the Frizlen Group. “This celebration will not only celebrate National Food Week but be a pre-construction celebration also.”
 The festivities will begin at 5 p.m. and everyone is encouraged to come out and enjoy, Frizlen said. By Brian Geerhart and Erica Lindo
