Goombay Festival

Goombay Festival took place this weekend in Asheville, NC and featured African and Caribbean arts and crafts, music and food! Several reggae bands performed as well as the Heather Hayes Band, headlined by the daughter of the late Isaac Hayes.
Food is always an integral part of any festival and Goombay was no exception. This stand is run by a Jamaican and the food is authentic with patties, cocoa bread, ackee and codfish, rice and peas, plantain - you get the idea. Really good stuff!

One Love Jamaican restaurant is located on Market Street and in the area of the festival. They were doing a good business on Friday evening and I intend to check them out soon.
