Long Table Dinner ~ On The Farm – Wednesday August 29, 2018
Grab your friends, and join us for a unique and memorable Long Table Dinner experience. This year the Coquitlam Farmers Market is heading to the Farm to host its annual long table dinner.
Local Chefs will masterfully incorporate diverse ingredients made and grown by local entrepreneurs and a bounty of fresh, local Tri-Cities and BC produce. The result is a dining experience guests won’t soon forget!
Like last year’s sell-out event, the evening will boast a “Denim and White” theme and will include a selection of unique highly desirable raffle baskets, cash bar, music and a champagne toast.
The secret location this year will not disappoint! It will bring guests to the heart of local food, where it is grown in the lush beauty of diverse farm setting.
Funds raised at the Long Table Dinner supports the Power of Produce Club, a youth agriculture program at the farmers market. The POP Club teaches children about local food systems, growing and cooking food, and financial literacy.
The Long Table Dinner ~ On the Farm will take place on Wednesday August 29th, from 6pm – 9:30pm. Tickets are $80 each and are available HERE!
