Tickets to the Fork it Over Westport Farmers' Market Fundraiser go on sale TODAY. A quick glance at the list of chefs cooking for this event and you'll understand the need for speed. Only the first 200 people to sign up will get seats. Go to the Westport Farmers' Market web site to grab a chair and join us.
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 Company will provide the dessert course.
Each chef will prepare four dishes, and the entire menu will be paired with inventive cocktails and wine. This is truly an evening not to be missed.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 www.westportfarmersmarket.com or email email@example.com.
