Plan now for NFM's Farmhand Dinner on October 23
The Nashville Farmers’ Market will host its 7th Annual Farmhand Dinner on Wednesday, October 23, at 6 p.m.
The event will bring together farmers, friends and community members to celebrate the end of a successful harvest season. Guests will learn about the Nashville Farmers' Market while enjoying a community hour hosted by the Friends of NFM and Lockeland Table in The Picnic Tap's Biergarten, followed by a family-style five-course meal with the men and women who produced it and the chefs who prepared it.
The menu, inspired by a typical dinner that was historically provided to farm workers at the end of a long day in the fields, will include cornbread and catfish along with your favorite Southern fixins — all prepared by an amazing line-up of chefs who support NFM farmers and artisans:
Hal Holden-Bache, waterbreak hors d'oeuvres
Margot McCormack, salad Course
Kahlil Arnold, catfish and cornbread
Tandy Wilson, catfish and cornbread
Crystal De-Luna Bogan, macaroni and cheese
Tyler Brown, coleslaw
Trey Cioccia, Southern greens
Ed Smith, white beans and onions
Rebekah Turshen, dessert plate
Seasonal cocktails, craft beer and Tennessee wine pairings will be provided by The Picnic Tap and Natchez Hills Winery.
Tickets are available now starting at $100 per person.
