It has been too long since I’ve posted on upcoming Triangle foodie happenings! Apologies galore to those of you who e-mailed me events over the past few months. I’ve been busy! Busy is a good thing, right?
Anyhow, I’ve got a list of fun events to share with you all, in order of which is coming up fastest.
South Durham is getting a Farmer’s Market! The chosen location is the Greenwood Commons Shopping Center in Parkwood, home to Papa Mojo’s, Thai Lanna, and Sarah’s Empanadas among other restaurants and stores. It opens this Saturday, and they’ve got a long list of producers signed on to sell their wares. But for this night owl, the hours are still way too short.
Much more to my liking is the . . .
LoMo Market, 5/3 and thereafter, various hours, Triangle-wide
LoMo Market is a mobile farmer’s market that’s hitting the road next week. They bring a range of products from local farms and producers to you, wherever you may be! Actually, they are bringing the mobile market to a few areas that pledged the most support in a fundraiser leading up to their first week on the road. The chosen locations gave the most in pledges to purchase from the LoMo Market. Here is the schedule that goes into effect next Wednesday.
a dark comedy about a food-service industry professional who is invited to an exclusive, underground dinner party and discovers there’s much more on the menu than he bargained for. It premieres in Wilmington this Saturday (28th) at the Cape Fear International Film Festival where it is nominated for Best Horror of 2012 and we were lucky enough to get a screening at Motorco on May 17. Flip from KoKyu BBQ Food Truck has offered to create menu items that reflect the “menu” in the movie, which will be insane! We’re asking for a suggested donation of five dollars at the door to help us with our film festival entry fees (we’ve applied to Cannes and Sundance… cross your fingers!) and we’re planning on having a great time.
Single Source Supper, 6/17, 7 – 10 pm, Hillsborough, $130
Daylight magazine and Chef Aaron Vandermark of Panciuto in Hillsborough are pairing up to create this fantastic evening out in celebration of Daylight’s new art space and highlighting the produce found from a single different farm at each meal. As their website describes it,
Our inaugural event will celebrate the launch of the Daylight Project Space in downtown Hillsborough, NC. The night’s events will feature food grown and raised by John Soehner and Cindy Econopouly of Eco Farm, local beer and wine, live music by The Hammond Eggs, a series of short film screenings and the quintessential buttered popcorn. We’ll have chairs, but bring a blanket for the movie if you prefer the grass.
