The Tacoma Farmers Market sent out a release a few minutes ago about a dinner at Terry's Berries in September.
Details from market manager Laura Edwards here:
Harvest Feast Tacoma ... September 13th ... get your tickets!
Join us for an evening on the farm in support of the Tacoma Farmers Market, our local farms, and the community our markets serve. That's right--the 6th Ave Farmers Market and Broadway Market bring you our first annual "Harvest Feast Tacoma."
This elegantly casual dining affair will be an event to remember! Fine cuisine that is locally grown and "chefed" will be served white-linen style in the open air of Terry's Berries Farm on September 13, from 5 - 9 pm. The $75 price includes locally grown and crafted beer wine, as well as local and handcrafted cheeses among other delightful appetizers, farm tours on this real working farm, market street musicians and entertainers will be performing throughout the evening, and last but not least--a multicourse buffet prepared by Tacoma's top chefs using all locally grown ingredients.
I cannot ruin the delightful surprise by revealing all the dishes, but I can tell you that Charlie from Primo Grill will be on site all day preparing a pit-roasted locally-grown pig from Cheryl the Pig Lady's farm. I can also tell you that we'll close the meal with Old Milwaukee's famous Tres Leches cake, among other sweets. All other accompaniments will remain a secret to be discovered by the first 100 locavores who purchase tickets for Harvest Feast Tacoma.
Tickets are available at both markets (information booth), by calling Laura at 253-272-7077, or at Brown Paper Tickets
