2021 Harvest RESocialize
Sunday, September 12
5 to 7 p.m.
Join us for a farm-to-table dinner to celebrate the resilience of our farm and market community. This year’s smaller, more intimate gathering will take place in the striking Mill City Museum Courtyard, which rises from the ruins of the Washburn A Flour Mill.
This year’s dinner will be held in Mill City Museum’s Washburn A Flour Mill Ruins Courtyard.
Come together to enjoy a craft cocktail, bountiful harvest supper and a live musical performance.
Proceeds help us continue our work to grow a just, local, sustainable food system and our mission to support a community through partnerships, educational programming and support for organic farmers & local food producers.
Donations and tickets from the event support our Charitable Fund.
Hard working farmers’ incomes have been severely impacted by the pandemic while food access and equity has become even more of a challenge. We need you this year more than ever before to ensure we can continue our year-round farmers market, educational and food access work and support for organic farmers and local food producers though our Next Stage Grant Program.
The Harvest Social’s Fund-A-Need auction at the end of the night directly supports our farmer grant program, which has awarded over $240,000 to small farmers and makers since 2013.
Mill City Farmers Market has been innovating what a safe, healthy and supportive market looks like for its 108 vendors who rely on thousands of market shoppers every Saturday to sustain their farms and local food businesses. We are taking our role in local food access and equity seriously to keep our market safe and support our community.
In addition to the market, our Charitable Fund is committed to supporting healthy food access and equity in the food system. This year we have expanded our Greens for Good food donation program and continued our partnership with six other organizations to support the Local Emergency Assistance Farmer Fund (LEAFF) to help small-scale producers, particularly BIPOC farmers. Both programs support farmers and eaters by purchasing produce at market prices and distributing it to community members facing food insecurity.
Programs like our Greens for Good food donation are supported by tickets and funds we raise at the Harvest Social.
