Ursinus students are invited to the Collegeville Farmers’ Market Saturday (Aug. 31) where they can enjoy a discount at the many booths by showing a student ID. The market is open 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Farmers’ Market is located in the parking lot of DaVinci’s Restaurant on Main Street, and features a produce booth run by the Ursinus Organic Farm in addition to these vendors with delicious products. More information is here, where you can sign up for the newsletter.
Also make plans to attend The Farmer and the Chef, which features delectable signature dishes from area restaurants, and benefits the Farmers’ Market. If you love great food offered in an atmosphere of leisurely fine dining, you won’t want to miss Collegeville’s first “Farmer and the Chef” food tastings dinner from the area’s most popular restaurants, with a number of the chefs using fresh local ingredients from the Collegeville Farmers’ Market.
The dinner will be held on Thursday, September 12th from 6 to 9:30 p.m. in the beautifully restored Copperfield Inn at Lakeside (the former Lakeside Inn, 594 W. Ridge Pike) in Limerick. Guests can arrive at any time during the evening to enjoy over 50 sensational small plates. More information on the $45 a person event can be found here.
