MEDINA, NY- Farm-to-table community dinners are growing in popularity across the country. Soon, Medina will welcome one of its own.
The village’s first Annual Farm-to-Table Community Dinner will be held Thursday, August 4, 2016, with a rain date of Thursday, August 11, and is sponsored by Zambistro along with the newest member of Medina’s business family, Pride Pak, Inc.
According to organizers, Medina’s event will deliver a sensational locally-sourced meal in the middle of Medina's Main Street Historic District. Proceeds will support the Canal Village Farmers' Market (CVFM). The meal itself will be a full five-course dinner, prepared by chef Michael Zambito. Each course will feature pairings from local Niagara Wine Trail wineries, 810 Meadworks and a WNY brewery.
Farm-to-table dinners often take place on the farm in an intimate field or orchard setting, but many have developed into larger community events.
