Northeast Minneapolis Farmers Market: Harvest Gala
As Hospitality Sponsor of the Northeast Minneapolis Farmers Market, we’re hosting a cool fundraiser for the organization at Solar Arts by Chowgirls. In addition to a live auction and silent auction, the 5th Annual Harvest Gala pairs vendors with local chefs to create amazing appetizers using ingredients sourced from the Northeast Minneapolis Farmers Market, Beez Kneez, Grlk, Bonicelli Kitchen, The Mill NE, and Chowgirls (natch!). At the bar you can sample drinks mixed with St. Paul Switchel and Gray Duck Chai while you groove to the vinyl that The Ring Toss Twins are spinning.
