2014 marks the 7th Annual Royal City Farmers Market Summer Kickoff Fundraiser Party and we want you to celebrate with us!
This event is a critical part of ensuring our market continues to flourish in New Westminster. Proceeds from this event help us do food-positive actions such as offering a bursary to New Westminster Senior Secondary grads entering food-based fields, as well as bringing lively entertainment and children’s activities to the market every week to encourage a sense of community at the market.
This year, we are very excited to announce the fundraiser takes place at the recently opened and much-lauded Hub Restaurant at Shops at New West Station. Executive Chef Michael Knowlson is creating a special “off the menu” tableau of canapes to delight your taste buds for the entire evening. Chef Knowlson has served as Executive Chef at Bacchus Restaurant in the Wedgewood Hotel and at Sequoia Grill at the Teahouse in Stanley Park. Prior to moving to Vancouver, he served as Executive Chef of cutting-edge London restaurants First Floor and 192, along with the private Groucho Club, where he cooked for such notables as Bill Clinton, Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts and Al Pacino.
The canape menu will consist of ingredients donated by our delicious vendors: Wild West Coast Seafoods, Outwest Ranch, Golden Ears Cheesecrafters, and Rockweld Farms. For one night only you’ll experience the true taste of our farmers market in the hands of this master chef!
Join us for an evening of mingling with fellow foodie enthusiasts, interactive entertainment, local food at it’s finest, and of course local libations! A silent auction will be available to tempt you with fine #madeinnewwest wares, and to kick it up a knotch we’ll also be having a live auction hosted by Citizen of the Year Patrick Johnstone.
This is one event in our Royal City that you definitely don’t want to miss. Tickets will sell out so buy now and bring your friends. RCFM needs your support to continue to do food-positive actions, PLUS we know it will be a fun party – it’s win-win for everyone!
