The Herb Fair is an annual event, sponsored by the New York Unit of the Herb Society of America. Since the Herb Garden at John Jay Homestead is maintained by the N.Y. Unit, the Fair is held at the Homestead in Katonah. The Herb Fair features gourmet foods like mustards, sauces, herbal salad dressings, jams and jellies; baked goods; herb and garden plants for sale; and gift items. Lunch is available, along with freshly made lovage soup. All proceeds benefit educational projects of the N.Y. Unit.
