“Please Pass the Peas!”
August 23rd 2012, 5:30-9:30pm Oxbow Organic Farm, Carnation WA
Do you ever feel out of touch with where your food comes from or how it is grown? Have you ever sat down to eat with the farmer who grew your meal’s ingredients? The Carnation Farmers Market invites you to Please Pass the Peas, a mid-summers evening celebration of food and community on Oxbow Organic Farm. Part of the Market’s objective is to create a stronger connection between people and the food they eat. What better way to forge that connection than dinner on a local organic farm where many of the meal ingredients were grown mere feet away?
Picture this: your evening starts with a welcome cocktail under the grape arbor. Glass Distillery vodka, made with exclusively Washington-grown grapes, paired with seasonal fruit syrup graces your glass. Sipping, you walk the rows of the farm to see your meal’s ingredients flourishing in their native habitat. After the farm tour and conversation with the farmers, you will settle into your seat in the orchard. The meal begins with the first of four delicious courses by Chef David Sanford. Chef Dave’s restaurant, Belle Clementine, is known for his use of local, seasonal products and its community-oriented atmosphere. At the long dinner tables on the farm you may find yourself talking to one of the producers of the evening’s meal – a farmer, winemaker, cheese maker, or rancher. Each course will be paired with a fine local wine.
Now picture that magnificent meal helping support a great cause: the Carnation Farmers Market. All proceeds from the meal will support the Market’s outreach, advertising, and season extension efforts – all of which in turn support local farms. By connecting local food-eaters and local food-producers we are creating a community where everyone can thrive. The Carnation Farmers Market, a favorite market with residents and farmers alike, has a reputation for being a family. Please come join us at the family dinner table for an elegant evening of food, drink, conversation, and a lot of fun.
