This Saturday, 25 Wilmington farmers are teaming up with renowned local chefs for one extraordinary event. The Farmer & The Chef will take place September 29th at the Chase Center on the Riverfront. The event not only benefits The March of Dimes, it also helps to create sustainable relationships between local farmers and chefs, while reinforcing the movement of eating healthy.
Local farmers will present their fresh product to chefs who will then utilize their culinary skills to produce delicious samples for all attendees. Fat Daddy has Been will be providing live musical entertainment.
All proceeds from the event go directly to The March of Dimes. The organization works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality and they are focused on advancing research on maternal and health issues, helping moms have healthy pregnancies and supporting families.
Tickets are $40 in advance and $50 at the door.
