Truck to Table at the Market September 22
Community members are invited to support and celebrate the continued success of the Downtown Evanston Farmers' Market at the annual Truck to Table community celebration and benefit on Saturday, September 22, 10 a.m. to noon, at the Market.
The family-friendly outdoor event will partner top local chefs with prominent Midwest sustainable growers to create small plates celebrating the bounty of local produce available at the Market. Tickets may be purchased in advance at the Market at the City of Evanston tent or online at cityofevanston.org/rectickets. Admission is $35 for seven chef-table tickets in advance, or $6 per chef-table ticket on the day of the event.
Among the chefs volunteering their time this year are those from Boltwood, Chef's Station, Eating Well, Edzo's Burger Shop, Farmhouse Evanston, Found, Gigio's Pizzeria, Gotta B Crepes, Kinship, Koi, Morsels Patisserie, NaKorn, Peckish Pig and River Valley Ranch. Chef Joe Dugan is also participating.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Market's outreach and educational programming, including the children's "Spud Club" and the LINK match program. Residents who support "eating local" and want to ensure the continued success of the Downtown Evanston Farmers' Market should reserve tickets now.
The event is presented by the City of Evanston's Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department. Sponsors include Bradley Investment Center and the Hilton Garden Inn.
The Downtown Evanston Farmers' Market, which is held on Saturdays from early May to early November at 1800 Maple Ave., was voted "Best Chicago-area Farmers Market" in 2017 and 2018 by Make It Better readers.
