Held at the Farmer’s Market, over 27 food vendors will be participating and giving out their best sips and bites.
Generous Helpings is my favorite tasting event, near and dear to my heart, as it was the first food event I ever attended in Nashville. In one quick night, I was able to capture the spirit of Nashville food’s scene. Not just because the participants bring more than enough food to make everyone happy, but also the spirit behind it. I often feel over blessed in the food department and never want to take this blessing for granted.
Restaurants, artisans, wineries, distilleries, come prepared to show off their bounty and support an admirable cause. Last year Second Harvest fed people in 46 counties in Middle and West Tennessee, distributing nearly 24 million pounds of food including 5 million pounds of fresh produce.
Tickets are $50 in advance and $60 at the door, worth every penny, and for a good cause.
Some of the Vendors will include:
B & C BBQ
Commerce Street Grille
Cork & Cow
Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams
Marche Artisan Foods
Nothing Bundt Cakes
Provence Breads & Cafe
Riff’s Fine Street Food
Second Harvest Culinary Arts Center
The Mad Platter
The Pied Piper Eatery
