Peachtree Road Farmers Market’s annual events highlight farm-fresh ingredients.
June 14 2015
Atlanta’s largest producer-only market celebrates summer’s bounty with local, farm-fresh fare at the third annual Sunday Supper. This year, nine chefs will prepare dishes composed of ingredients from Peachtree Road Farmers Market’s own vendors. Buckhead chefs include Nick Leahy of Saltyard and Thomas McKeown of The Grand Hyatt Buckhead, and Second Self Beer Company is pouring their brews. The meal is served family style, and guests can expect to pile their plates high with pork and beef from Riverview Farms, as well as produce like peaches, fresh lettuces, cucumbers and tomatoes. Local co-ed a cappella group The Graduates provide entertainment with their vocal beats and bops as they perform bubbly covers. The Sunday Supper will be served indoors at the Cathedral of St. Philip and tickets are $75 per person. Funds from the event support Peachtree Road Farmers Market programs and operations.
Slow Food Atlanta Ice Cream Social
Nothing welcomes summer like ice cream. But how about some spoonfuls of interesti
ng flavors you’ve never sampled before—olive oil or sweet corn ice cream, anyone? The ninth annual event draws Atlanta chefs and amateurs competing to be “the cream of the crop” by utilizing local vegetables to create unique ice cream flavors. All guests need to bring are spoons and their appetites. As you taste, you vote for your favorite ice cream flavor. The ice cream social is from 12 to 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for children 5 to 10 years old. A limited number will be sold at the event so you are advised to buy tickets in advance. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Atlanta chapter of Slow Food International and the Peachtree Road Farmers Market.
