Farewell to Our Founders ⋅ A Tribute to Bernadine Prince and Ann Harvey Yonkers

Join us as we honor two local food superstars, Bernadine Prince and Ann Harvey Yonkers, who had a vision for a better food system in the Chesapeake Bay Region, transformed our neighborhoods with vibrant farmers markets, and taught us to treasure those who feed us. Raise a glass to our pioneers and toast the future of the organization they built to last.

The Farmland Feast is a very special night where FRESHFARM Markets pays delicious tribute to the food and farms of the Chesapeake Bay watershed and to our growing community of supporters. Taste the difference that celebrated chefs, bartenders, regional wine and spirit makers are all making to our areaís burgeoning food scene.

Our sophisticated farm and food-centric silent auction takes place during the cocktail party which also features oyster growers, beer meisters and music (tickets may be bought separately). The stellar team of dinner chefs, headed by Brian McBride of RW Restaurant Group will prepare a spectacular sit-down, three-course autumnal dinner, created with market and other regional ingredients. Washington Post Travel and Food Editor, Joe Yonan, is the Master of Ceremonies for the night, which also includes a spectacular live auction. This benefit is a prominent highlight of the local-food movement in the Washington, DC, area and attracts more than 475 guests, as well as national and local media attention.

Funds from the 2015 Farmland Feast support our core mission of running 13 producer-only farmers markets and five charitable programs, which educate the public about the benefits of buying and cooking fresh, healthy food.

With the help of more than 150 loyal farmers and producers, FRESHFARM Markets brings local food to more than 400,000 customers each year. And with events such as our Farmland Feast, our partnerships and our diverse and educational programming, we reach both underserved and well-served populations of shoppers: friends, families, neighbors, environmentalists, gardeners, health professionals and, most important, healthy eaters.
