Attention all fans of Findlay Market -- or of farm-to-table, locavore, locally sourced food, farmers' markets, and every healthy foodie within driving distance of downtown Cincinnati:
This Thursday, September 13, try to attend this year's top find-raiser for the Market. It's called "EAT LOCAL FOR THE GLOBE," and it happens from 6 - 9:30 PM.
They've planned a two-tiered event this year. One (for $50 per person) is a casual, walk-around affair where patrons go from station to station around the market (outdoors, I'm told) to taste all kinds of foods from local farmers and the Findlay Market vendors.
The latter include Bouchard's (known mostly for its fresh pasta and pasta sauces), Dojo Gelato, Fresh Table (gourmet-to-go prepared foods), Skirtz & Johnston (my own favorite bakery at the Market, and there are many rivals) and Pho Lang Tang (delicious Vietnamese cuisine), among others.
Patrons also will enjoy live, access to the Biergarten, and sampling of craft cocktails made on-site and to order by the peerless Molly Wellman.
For those who want to really live it up, the second tier is a Chef's Table for an eye-popping $175 per person. That blowout includes a seven-course meal prepared by many of Cincinnati's top chefs along with wine pairings for most if not all the courses.
Click here to buy tickets. (I'm about to order mine now, for the $50 deal though....)
I hope to see a lot of you there!
