As we eagerly count down the days until the start of the 2016 Epcot Food and Wine Festival, we’re already making our list of all the things we have to eat! (And speaking of counting down — check out our Countdown Sale!!)
This year’s Festival – which runs from September 14 until November 14 – features some tried-and-true favorite Marketplace Booths and some new booths!
Today we’re going to check out two of the new booths: THE CHEW Collective and Islands of the Caribbean!
THE CHEW Collective Marketplace Booth
You’ll find THE CHEW Collective in the Next Eats section of Future World. You don’t want to miss this marketplace booth!

Also on the menu this year is a Grilled Beef Skewer with Romaine, Apricots, and Feta Cheese. We had a chance to sample this dish and it’s one you don’t want to miss.
You’ll want to save room for dessert at THE CHEW Collective – Peanut Butter and White Chocolate Mousse with a Caramel Drizzle!
Islands of the Caribbean Marketplace Booth
We can’t wait to check out the Caribbean flavors on the menu at Islands of the Caribbean! There have been Caribbean booths at festivals in the past, and this one looks to be very similar — even bringing back an old favorite, the Frozen Mojito!

You’ll also find the Pescao con Coco: Seared Grouper, Pigeon Peas and Rice with Coconut Sauce! This dish was also featured at the Dominican Republic Marketplace Booth in 2015!
