Brought to you by the record label Arts and Crafts, the Field Trip Music festival was their way of celebrating their 10th anniversary. The full-day event was held last Saturday at the Fork York Garrison Common and featured artists from their music label including Broken Social Scene and Feist.

I attended the festival with fellow foodie Abbey (Abbey’s Kitchen) to enjoy the music and most importantly, to pig out on all the great food at the event. The vendors were curated by Toronto Underground Market (TUM). If you’ve never heard of them before, they usually hold events at the Evergreen Brickworks and is a place “for budding entrepreneurs to showcase their products.” They’re famous for kick-starting popular eateries which include the likes of La Carnita and Rock Lobster.

There were also some food trucks at the event so we decided to hit them up first. Here’s a look at our good eats…

Nutella Bombs – with a corn flake batter, bourbon caramel and whipped cream  from The Food Dudes truck (@TheFoodDudesTO). Best. Things. Ever.
