Fork It Over: Pop-Up Dinner for Westport Farmers' Mkt

Stephanie Webster

Craving a new date night experience?  Perhaps a chic city spot with the casual atmosphere you love in Fairfield County?  Look no further. The Westport Farmers’ Market has the exclusive night of great food, great wine, great friends and a great cause.

On January 28, 2012 the greenhouse at Gilbertie’s Herb Gardens will be transformed into a “Pop-Up” restaurant with a chef lineup that will make you drool. CTbites got the list and we are happy to share: Bill Taibe of leFarm, Matt Storch of Match, Tim LaBant of The Schoolhouse at Cannondale, Michel Nischan of Dressing Room, and John Barricelli of Sono Baking Companywill provide the dessert course. 

Each chef wil prepare four dishes, and the entire menu will be paired with inventive cocktails and wine. This is truly an evening not to be missed. 

Intrigued?  Tickets won’t be for sale until January 3rd – except for those who support the market at a “Butcher” level or higher.  For more information contact Lori Cochran-Dougall at 307.690.1759 or Or stop by the market on Thursday where Lori may slip up and share some more tidbits about what’s planned for the evening.

Tickets for Fork It Over are $150 and seating is very limited.  All proceeds will go to the Westport Farmers’ Market, a 501(c) 3 organization, to support the growers, education and the community service mission of the organization. 

The winter market takes place Thursdays from 10:00 – 2:00 at the Greenhouses at Gilbertie’s Herb Gardens.  For more information go to or email
