I wasn’t sure what to expect at the 4th Annual Down to Earth Farmraiser but I discovered on this pleasant October evening, that farming is alive and well in midtown Mobile.
Local chefs from twelve area restaurants and businesses wowed the crowd of hungry guests with their bite-sized delectable creations. The thirty-five dollar tax-deductible ticket admitted me to the event along with two glasses of wine and multiple samples of the various chefs’ bounty.
The restaurants included Noble South, Nourish, Haberdasher, Red and White, Pour Baby, Bay Gourmet, and Old Dutch.
Victory Teaching Farm is all about sustainable, clean locally sourced food. It is South Alabama’s first and only teaching farm located in midtown Mobile on Rickarby Street. While the farm provides ample produce each year for the local area, it also provides internships, volunteer opportunities, and fresh pick produce markets for locals.
This event gets bigger and better each year. Mark your calendars for early October 2019. You will not want to miss this locally sourced food event. Come hungry, you will not be disappointed!
