SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - Farm Aid is more than a family of musicians banding together to help the small farmer. It's also a family meal.

This year's concert is taking place Saturday in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. A key component is the food that comes through Farm Aid's Homegrown Concessions. It was started six years ago to create new market opportunities for family farmers.

Vendors include local food-service outlets and national brands such as Chipotle and Amy's Organic. They must meet Farm Aid's criteria for sourcing the ingredients in their food.

Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Dave Matthews and John Mellencamp lead the star-studded lineup at this year's concert. It goes through Saturday night.
