Fans of Westport restaurateur Bill Taibe and Anthony Kostelis won’t want to miss the Westport Farmers’ Market annual Fork it Over  on March 10, 2019 at The Whelk. Only 60 tickets are available for the this intimate Kiddish BRUNCH event where community members gather for great food and conversation in support of the Westport Farmers’ Market.

Special Chef Guest includes Arik Bensimon (most recently at Le Farm), so we are pretty excited to get this chef team back together.

This year’s theme honors WFM’s celebration of culture and the recipes that inspire our communities. “Chefs Taibe and Anthony Kostelis promise to take their culinary talents over the top for this special brunch experience and we can’t wait!” said Lori Cochran-Dougall.

Each year, the WFM hosts fundraising gatherings at area restaurants that support the market. “WFM is a nonprofit that operates numerous educational and influential programs that impact the lives of chefs, farmers, adults, and children in the Westport and surrounding communities,” said Cochran-Dougall. “We couldn’t do any of it without generous supporters. Rather than simply ask for money, we honor our supporters with events throughout the year like Fork it Over.”

Tickets for the event are $125 per person and may be purchased here.

 The Westport Farmers Market is committed to providing fresh, local, healthy and seasonal food.

We aspire to create a fun, safe and healthy community environment for education and

socialization. Our mission is to increase awareness, knowledge and support for local producers

focused on sustainable and healthy growing practices.
