The heart of the summer is over by September, but Saaremaa continues to smile invitingly and deliciously to all. Rye that has escaped the heat of the summer is golden in the most fertile soil of the island. Potato is turning another side in the earth. Vegetables, who sleep in the daytime and grow at night, are counting the stars in the sky all over Saaremaa. Fruits are deliciously plump and are blushing due to their virgin ripeness. Clean air and sea breeze – it is Freshness. Real Freshness. Especially in the beginning of September, when Mother Earth has blessed us by offering it’s best sons and daughters. Saaremaa Food Festival, born in 2014, offers fascinating program for a whole week, so there is just one thing to say: Proper food makes merry mood!
