Eat Farm-to-Fork with the Nicholasville Farmers’ Market and Support Bluegrass Greensource
By: Amy Sohner, Executive Director, Bluegrass Greensource
In recent weeks, our friends from the Nicholasville Farmers’ Market and the Jessamine County Extension Office have worked hard to create a delicious Farm-to-Fork dinner on Saturday, October 14th, at the Jessamine County Fairgrounds. The brainchild of Babette Overman, of Overman’s Bluegrass Fruits and Vegetables, the Farm-to-Fork event will feature Kentucky Proud food from multiple vendors, drinks and flowers from local farmers, and the delicious recipes of Chef Shannen Bunton from Housewarmings. Proceeds from the event will support Bluegrass Greensource and the Jessamine County Food Pantry.
The event will start at 5:30 and offer opportunities to meet and talk with Kentucky Proud vendors as they showcase their products. Dinner will start at 6:30 and will feature food from Garrett Farms Beef, Overman’s Bluegrass Fruit and Vegetables, and many more.
Tickets are $35 and are available at the Nicholasville Farmers’ Market and the Jessamine County Extension Office. Credit and Debit Card ticket sales can be taken by calling (703) 586-7278. The seating is limited to 150 people, and we expect this event to sell out!
