We're bringing the farm to the city! Join us for a special Peak Harvest Farm Dinner recognizing Rick Bayless & Deann Groen Bayless of Frontera Farmer Foundation for their impact on local sustainable & organic farmers, many of whom have also been part of our farmer training programs! Galleria Marchetti will transform into an urban farm oasis filled with food using locally sourced & organic ingredients, a fresh pie stand, a farm store, polaroid pics with adorable farm animals, live bluegrass from the No Name Stringband and special guests including chefs, farmers, and emcee, Monica Eng of WBEZ & Chewing

This year’s menu features biodynamic produce from Angelic Organics farm, pasture & organically raised poultry from All Grass Farms, fresh pie from Bang Bang Pie & Biscuits, and cheese from Local Foods. Beverages will be plentiful, including beer & signature cocktails from New Holland Brewing & Artisan Spirits and hyper local vodka from CH Distillery, distilled in West Loop using Illinois-grown grains! Candid Wines - a local distributor of organic, biodynamic & sustainable wines - will provide offerings from Girasole Vineyards, an organic winery for more than six decades. Take home goodies from Acure OrganicsAngelic OrganicsJohnny's Selected Seeds, RXBAR, Think Jerky and more! Floral & herb design by epoch.floral.
