Farm to table is more than just delicious food; celebrate farm fresh food by the glass full!
Join Mass Farmers Markets and Edible Boston for the inaugural Farm to Glass, Mixology Throwdown as we cheer on some of Greater Boston’s talented mixologists and celebrate the abundance of farm fresh cocktails with Bully Boy spirits!
Guests will sample 10 cocktails (sample size) featuring local farm-fresh ingredients, plus vote for your two favorites and have a full size glass of each to enjoy. Delicious small bites will be passed too! The top 3 mixologists will then compete head-to-head in the mystery CSA challenge – creating a cocktail from CSA ingredients given to them for the title of Mixology Throwdown Champ. To add more to the challenge, three guests will be picked as bar backs for the competition.The event will feature Boston’s own DJ Deja, spinning today’s biggest hits in her signature creative style.

Mass Farmers Markets & Waltham Fields Community Farm
Mass Farmers Markets (MFM) is the only nonprofit organization working on behalf of all 280 farmers markets in the state. We help create, sustain, and promote farmers markets and the many benefits associated with them. At the core of MFM’s mission, we support social and economic development and the health of individuals statewide – collaborating with community partners and stakeholders. We serve everyone, from farmers and vendors, to farmers markets, shoppers and their communities. Part of programming is directly running three markets, Somerville’s Davis Square, Cambridge’s Central Square, and Boston’s Copley Square which is also MFM’s flagship market. It is at these markets that we test new procedures and innovative systems to sustain and improve farmers markets and the services provided to Massachusetts residents.
