Saturday, August 25, 2012. Main Street, Jonesborough, TN.
Such an honor - to be present here. And to collect the story of 160 strangers who quickly became friends... Gathered together to support a common passion.
This beautifully elegant five course dinner was created and prepared by Chef Alex Bomba andMain Street Cafe & Catering. Each course was created with local ingredients provided by the farms who gather every weekend at the Jonesborough Farmer's Market. There were so many helping hands who collaborated to make this feast happen - right down the middle of Main Street.
Proceeds from the dinner benefit the Jonesborough Farmers Market.
