Harvest Abundance


July 28th – 5pm to 8pm

Farm-to-Table Dinner – Local Spirits – Silent Auction – Live Music – Grand Prize Raffle!

Chatham Mills Farmers’ Market is celebrating the bountiful season and vibrant local food community with our 8th Annual Harvest Abundance Dinner and Fundraiser!  Please come join us for this event and enjoy delicious farm-fresh food while helping to support small farmers and sustainable food systems in our community.

Harvest Abundance will be at Forest Hall and hosted by Pickle Jar Cafe, a local farm-to-table restaurant that is one of our neighbors at the Chatham Mills building in Pittsboro.  All of the farmers from the Chatham Mills Farmers’ Market will be supplying fresh produce for the dinner, so it will be an excellent opportunity for fans of local food and agriculture to gather together and enjoy the bounty of summer, fresh from the farm and prepared by chef Mario Robledo and the talented team at Pickle Jar Cafe.

In addition to heavy hors d’oeuvres and dessert made with choice ingredients provided by our farmers, dinner will also include select local beverages provided by the Fair Game Beverage Company Tasting Room.  The event will also include live music, a grand prize raffle, and a silent auction of items and services by local artists, farmers, and businesses.  The grand prize of the raffle is new this year from The Durham Hotel, a mid-century modern boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Durham. Enjoy a Night at The Durham Hotel, along with dinner for two at the Restaurant at The Durham by James Beard Award-winning chef Andrea Reusing!

Tickets to the event will be available at the door for $60 or can be purchased ahead of time for $55 at the Saturday Farmers Market, Pickle Jar Cafe, Chatham Marketplace, Country Farm & Home in Pittsboro, or from this site, using Paypal.  Each ticket to the event comes with a raffle ticket to win the grand prize.  If you can’t make it to the event, you can still enter to win the raffle.  Raffle tickets for the grand prize may be purchased at the Saturday farmers market before the event and during the event itself (raffle tickets are $5 each or 5 tickets for $20).

If you would like to donate an item to the silent auction, please contact Kathleen Conroy at kkrconroy@gmail.com

All proceeds from Harvest Abundance will go to benefit Chatham Mills Farmers’ Market.

We look forward to seeing you there!
