The Village Feast commences upon the closing of Saturday’s Davis Farmers Market—America’s Favorite Farmers Market—in celebration of September’s Sacramento-region Farm to Fork Month.
Yolo County puts the “farm” in America’s Farm to Fork Capitol, and so we come together to enjoy and honor the bounty of our local farmers. This event goes beyond a delicious meal, there will be a silent auction held as a fundraiser to benefit Davis Farm to School and Les Dames D’escoffier Sacramento. Both organizations provide support of early and continued education around food and agriculture. All proceeds from the Village Feast ticket sales and silent auction will go towards these missions.
We look forward to you joining us. Please bring your own table settings, plates, silverware, glasses, and napkins so you can enjoy this communal meal. Aperitifs include olives, nuts, and local light wines, fresh baguettes, and bowls of salt. The meal will be served family-style, with passed platters of heirloom tomatoes drizzled with local olive oil. Steamed and grilled end-of-season vegetables, hard-boiled eggs, and bowls of garlic-scented aïoli will follow the tomatoes. Next comes the grilled lamb. The bottles empty, the bread is eaten, and dessert will be served—a pear galette, with a crisp crust and local pears bursting with juice.
