Event description

Description

Taste The Local Difference is excited to present the MQT Local Food Fest, a farm-to-table celebration, honoring and connecting all links of the Upper Peninsula’s local food system, from farmers to eaters and everyone in-between.

The event will feature a silent auction of Farmers Harvest Baskets & other local goods, interactive educational trivia and most importantly the 3rd Annual NMU Alumni Culinary Competition, where all guests will help choose the chef who will take home the coveted Traveling Pineapple Trophy! We have eight chefs competing and each is asked to make two appetizers: one vegetarian & one of the chef's choice. There will be a cash bar featuring local beer, wine & spirits.

Ticket sales from our event goes right back to great organizations like Partridge Creek Farm who helps with Farm-to-School programs and urban food access, the Downtown Marquette Farmers Market's Power of Produce Program and most importantly goes right back into the pockets of the local producers who we purchase our ingredients from. NMU EcoReps will also be helping us be thoughtful about our environmental impact!

Tickets are $25 if purchased before October 7th - after that price goes up to $35. The cost includes entrance into the event, free food, a swag bag for every attendee and a chance a few great door prizes. There will also be a kids activities room down the hall.

This year we are doing all we can to make our event as green as ever, from the ingredients to our practices and activities!
