This Saturday, the Columbia Farmers Market and Sustainable Farms & Communities are hosting a fantastic event that any area readers of this blog should attend. The second annual Taste of the Market is a celebration of local foods in mid-Missouri, with over 20 local chefs and providers making and presenting foods sourced entirely or primarily from local producers. For just a $5 cover charge, you can explore the possibilities of our local food system, along with Missouri beers and wines. The event also includes live music and an outdoor screening of a food documentary.
Visit the event’s main page to see details; this is not something to miss! Even better, it’s serving as a fundraiser for the Farmers Market Pavilion, which is very much needed as the market continues to grow (we reportedly hit 6,700 customers last Saturday, in only four hours!).
See you there!
