Phoenix Public Market Hosts First PHX Pheast Farm-To-Fork Tasting Event
October 12, 2018 by Lauren Potter
There’s something special about buying locally-grown produce from the Phoenix Public Market. The local farmer’s market, which started in 2005, brings together community, music and the farmers who have dedicated their lives to growing produce to nourish us all.
To celebrate the farmers who make a market like ours possible, Phoenix Public Market will hold its first PHX Pheast, a farm-to-fork experience on Sunday, Nov. 11 from 5-9 p.m. Moving from booth to booth, local food lovers from around the Valley are invited to enjoy an evening of gourmet bites, music and community, held in the heart of Downtown Phoenix.
Utilizing ingredients from local farmers and producers, this tasting event is a unique opportunity to meet the growers at local farms, and learn more about the foods you eat.
Local chefs will be paired with local growers, and each small plate is packed with a variety of locally-sourced ingredients found at the market, including delectable meats from Double Check Ranch, The Proper Beast and Circle Key Ranch.
Between bites, guests can sip a special PHX Pheast cocktail, wine and beer, while enjoying live entertainment from local musicians.
Featured farmers and producers include Abby Lee Farms, Al Hamka Farm, Blue Sky Organic Farms, Bambox, Community Exchange Table, Crooked Sky Farms, Golo Family Farms, Horny Toad Farms, Maya’s Farm, Southwest Mushrooms, Steadfast Farms and YoBro microgreens.
Tickets are $75 and include 12 gourmet small plates, entertainment and two drink tickets. Additional alcohol tickets may be purchased at the event, as well as online.
PHX Pheast is a fundraiser for The Phoenix Public Market, a program of Community Food Connections, which focuses on promoting small Arizona farmers, ranchers and food producers, so they are able to survive and grow — feeding generations to come.
