Farmers’ Market Hosts Fundraiser Dinner 

The Columbus County Farmers’ Market will be celebrating the fall harvest with a Farm-to-Table dinner on Thursday, Oct. 20, at 6 p.m. Many aspects of the feast will include ingredients from local growers and vendors, and all proceeds will go toward the purchase of commercial appliances for the kitchen at the market.  

“We do our best to incorporate vegetables and many other things from our local farmers into the meal,” said board secretary Jackie Lewis.  

Dinner will consist of hors d’oeuvres, steak, salad, potatoes, and rolls, and will be prepared by Cook and Company Catering. Desserts by Sweedeepie Cheesecakes will conclude the meal.  

Alcohol is not included in the price, but there will be a cash bar set up with a bartender available throughout the evening.  

There will also be a silent auction where folks can bid on baked goods and other items, and a door prize will be handed out that includes a basket full of goods from local suppliers. 

Businesses are also invited to reserve and sponsor a table for $500, and each of the sponsors will be listed on the event’s menu.  

Only 80 spots are available, and individual tickets can be purchased for $70 each. The Farm-to-Table dinner will be held at the Spillway, 1252 Millpond Road, Whiteville. For more information about the meal or to reserve your seat, contact Lewis at 703.623.7515.
