The South Durham Farmers' Market Presents: A Spring Harvest Dinner
Sunday, April 14, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 11:00 PM (PDT)
The First Spring Harvest Dinner of The South Durham Farmers' Market will present an amazing bounty of fresh produce, meats, and much more, all from the vendors and farmers you have come to know, and love, at our market. The wonderfully talented Chef Jefe and his staff at Pop's Backdoor South will be creating a bright, seasonal, and inspiring menu with the spring harvest of our farmers. The event will begin with wine and appetizers at 6pm, and be followed by the seated dinner around 6:40pm. We plan on having some of our farmers and vendors in attendance, so feel free to mingle with them and get to know your farmers a bit better! We want this to be the first of many events bringing together the South Durham community with our market, to celebrate the vibrant food culture that has developed around it, and start discussions, friendships, and more. Please join us!
