This is the ultimate pass for an amazing line-up of events!
The first event, the Chefs' Harvest Potluck dinner, will take place on Thursday, November 1, from 7 9 pm, at the Town Commons in Carrboro, NC.

All the featured chefs use Carrboro Farmers' Market as a consistent resource for ingredients and 100 percent of the money raised through ticket sales will go to the Market for physical improvements to its current location.
"We are excited to partner with TerraVITA and raise money to improve the Markets' physical grounds to better serve our farmers and our community," said Sarah Blacklin, market manager for the Carrboro Farmers' Market. "We also are looking forward to hosting this great experience for our farmers and community to celebrate local food together. It will showcase the talent of chefs right here in the Triangle and lay the groundwork for future fundraising efforts."
