FORAGE remains Orange FOOD Week's premier event, with tickets selling out in half an hour on Monday.
With most tickets selling during the Friends of FOOD presale, FOOD Week committee president James Sweetapple said almost 500 of the 1500 tickets were released in the second round.
"It went very smoothly, we couldn't be happier," he said.

Mr Sweetapple said there were good sales for the Taste Local on the Lawn events, to be held on the Orange Regional Museum roof on April 1-3, and the Autumn Grazing Dinner at Blayney on March 30, but plenty of tickets remained.
"We've got Tony Worland from Tonic cooking at Blayney, which will be very good," he said.
"Taste Local on the Lawn was very popular last year so we've got three of those happening."
With 99 per cent of waste from Forage composted and 97 per cent of waste from the night markets diverted from landfill last year, Mr Sweetapple said there was little more to be added to the event's sustainability.
"We're taking great pleasure in helping other events learn and follow," he said.
"We helped [Orange Wine Festival] and the Banjo Paterson festival will be doing something similar, but a lot ring up and ask."
FOOD Week runs from Friday, March 27 until Sunday, April 5.
Tickets can be purchased here.
