LINCOLN CITY CELEBRATES LOCAL FOODS
LINCOLN CITY – To celebrate the end of summer, and toast the success of the best farmers’ market season Lincoln City has ever had, the Lincoln City Cultural Center is hosting its first Fall Feast on Friday, Oct. 21. It will be a cozy dinner highlighting fresh, local produce, turned into tasty creations by local chefs. Food will be served from 6 to 8 p.m. in the auditorium at the LCCC, 540 NE Hwy. 101.
The menu is still a work in progress, but it already features a bountiful salad from Barking Dog Farm and Chef Dave Schaffer; vegetarian dips and appetizers by Great Life by Lucinda; local berry pastries by Capt. Dan’s Pirate Pastries; fish tacos by J’s Fish & Chips; plus edible donations by Corvus Landing Farm, Walker Farm, Peoria Garlic Farm, Blackfish Café and Bernard’s Farm.
“We are so proud to play a small part in the success of the Lincoln City Farmers Market,” said Niki Price, executive director of the Lincoln City Cultural Center. “Our local foods scene has grown by leaps and bounds, which is good for small businesses, the food supply and the environment.”
Guests may also donate at the gift table, where items donated by market vendors will be sold. Selections will include an iridescent multi-colored bracelet by Dancing Mermaid Designs, a handmade paintbrush caddy by Ethel’s Fabric Crafts and a woven scarf by Paradise Alpaca Ranch, all vendors at the Lincoln City Farmers Market.
Admission to the dinner, which includes a bountiful buffet and beverages, is $25 per person or two for $40. Proceeds from tickets and donations will go to the Lincoln City Food Pantry and the Lincoln City Cultural Center, through the generosity of the market vendors and board.
