The Community Farmers Market at Chehalis is sure to satisfy foodies and farmers alike by offering local fare at the 8th annual Community Farmers Market Harvest Dinner. The farm to table style dinner will be held on Sunday, October 12, 2014 at The Historic Hotel Washington in downtown Chehalis. The event encourages community members and farmers market vendors to join together in celebration of the local market. It also serves as a fundraising event which helps the non-profit market acquire funds for operating expenses for the subsequent season.
Local ingredients supplied by Farmers market vendors will create a seasonal meal which will be prepared by local chefs. A vegetarian dinner option will also be available.
Tickets ($35/adults, $20/children) are available for purchase at the Community Farmers Market at Chehalis (Tuesdays), Book ‘n’ Brush in Chehalis and at Santa Lucia Coffee in Centralia or online at Brown Paper Tickets, http://cfmharvestdinner.bpt.me. Tables of eight may be reserved upon group purchase; All seats must be purchased upon a single transaction.
A social hour will start at 5pm featuring local Washington cider, beer and wine as well as locally roasted coffee from Santa Lucia coffee. Dinner will begin at 6:00pm followed by entertainment and a raffle with items donated by local businesses. A dessert auction will bring the evening to close along with the silent auction of Garden Scarecrows made from the Farmers Market Garden Scarecrow competition. More info about the Scarecrow Competition can be found on the Market website.
