On July 19, Local Roots NYC will bring together food lovers at our Summer Shakedown to celebrate local food that tastes out of this world! Local Roots NYC connects New Yorkers with local food through produce markets that pop up weekly at neighborhood bars and cafes in NYC. This free party will feature an epic salad bar with all the fixings. All ingredients represent different options available for purchase at Local Roots markets such as salad greens grown on a rooftop farm, sauerkraut, handmade cheese, and more, as well as iced coffee samples and shrub spritzers.
Participants can discover their spirit veggie, meet other food loving NYers, learn about the logistics of how our farmers transport food from farm to city, and enjoy culinary demonstrations such as how to build a fancy cheese platter (and photograph it well).
Orders for our Farm Share placed during the party will receive a goodie bag of local treats ranging from Local Roots veggies to artisanal Sambal and a can of Toast Ales. The first 25 attendees will also receive a goodie bag of local treats.
When: July 19, 2018 from 6-9pm
Where: Bergn Beer Hall 899 Bergen Street
Cost: Free, rsvp is preferred to help plan for food quantities
