Wild Ginger at An Incredible Feast

We're celebrating the season of harvest with An Incredible Feast on October 7, from 6 to 9pm at Swansons Nursery

Feast on a cornucopia of incredible dishes showcasing the relationship between farm and restaurant, in a collaboration event pairing Seattle top chefs with local Washington farmers.

To create our speciality dish, Wild Ginger has been paired with Tiny's Organic and given a generous donation of plums, plouts and nectarines from their farm in Wenatchee, Wash.

See what our Executive Chef, Jacky Lo, has created at An Incredible Feast on October 7!

All proceeds from this event directly support the Good Farmer Fund and the Neighborhood Farmers Market Alliance's low income access programs, free community events, food education, and advocacy of local family farms. Learn more here>>  

The event also features country-fair-style games with fabulous prizes, and a silent auction with opportunities to experience local farms and gourmet food. Live music will be provided by the toe-tapping combo Tinker's Darm.
