Here’s an interesting local event coming soon from the Buy Fresh Buy Local organization — the Farm Meets Table event for chefs/restaurant owners and local farmers.
Farm Meets Table: Making Local Food Connections
Monday, April 12, 2010
7 West King Street, Malvern
Hosted by PASA Southeast Regional Office & Chef Sean Weinberg
RSVP by 4/8 here
This event brings together local farmers looking to sell directly to restaurant chefs. Owner/Chef Sean Weinberg has made a deep commitment to feature fresh, regionally produced foods at Restaurant Alba, and he will be sharing his expertise on buying locally in a brief “How to Buy from Farmers” presentation for chefs. In addition, a “How to Sell to Chefs” segment will be led by Mark Dornstreich of Branch Creek Farm for growers new to direct sales.
For Local Growers
We ask that only growers with the desire and capability to sell their locally grown items on a commercial scale attend this event. Please note that all local growers will be screened to determine eligibility prior to the event. Don’t meet the requirements, but interested in selling locally? We encourage you to locate farmers markets in your area by visiting buylocalpa.org/southeast.
For Local Buyers
Savvy restaurants are choosing to buy locally for a reason- local foods offer premium taste, maximum freshness and keep dollars in our local economy. Not to mention, many customers think buying local foods is important and beneficial to the well being of their families and communities. We ask that only local buyers committed to buying locally produced foods attend this event.
