Events in September 2018
- Feast of the Harvest Moon
Feast of the Harvest Moon
The annual signature fundraising dinner, the Feast of the Harvest Moon, will be held at Market for the third time. This is a celebration of local food—those who grow it, those who cook it, and those who feast on it! The occasion is held in observance of the Harvest Moon, the full moon nearest the fall equinox, which illuminated fields late into the night so farmers could reap their crops. The evening will begin at 5:30pm with a reception before the dinner. Beverage pairings will accompany the sumptuous extravaganza of local foods, and a cash bar will be available. Keeping with all things local, three separate pork entrée renditions will be provided by former host of this event, Zehnder’s of Frankenmuth, along with Frankenmuth Bavarian Inn and the Bavarian Inn Lodge. The Market will be preparing the complement of courses, family-style sides and dessert to complete the meal of all locally-sourced food. Limited rare and exclusive dining experiences for future bookings at the Market will be included in the auction. Tickets at $60 each are limited to 70 guests, available now at the Farm Store or by calling the Market. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, the Market is focused on educating people about the importance and impact of local foods, farmers, producers, and those who feed us. The experience will be an enriching one for everyone involved while working towards a more closely connected food system for the future.
