Farm to Table Dinner Series
The Table Urban Farm is pleased to continue a tradition begun in the late summer and fall of the 2017 growing season. For the fourth consecutive season, we will be hosting pop-up farm to table dinners at various homes and garden locations around the neighborhood. In partnership with Chef Andrew Forlines, each dinner will consist of four courses that feature seasonal produce and a unique outdoor location. Tables and chairs will be appropriately spaced for safety. For more information please scroll down to the “What Can I Expect?” section. Each of our dinners over the course of the last three seasons have sold out quickly so reserve your seat today!

What can I expect?
Cost: Our dinners are $100 per person and include your first glass of wine (more on that below). Your ticket helps support the ongoing 2Root campaign and our ongoing efforts to provide food and food education for our community. For more details visit our 2Root Campaign page.
Tips: If the quality of our food and service exceeds expectations, we welcome any additional donations for the work of The Table. Our waitstaff is a team of volunteers from the extended Table Community.
Menu: Because our menus feature seasonal garden produce, they will be revealed about a week in advance of each dinner. While the menu will not be made up exclusively of Table produce (we don’t raise cattle…yet…) it will be sourced by other local farms and trusted farmers. Be assured that great care has been taken in the raising, tending, harvesting, and preparation of each dinner. If you have any dietary restrictions, please indicate so on the reservation form at checkout – we can and will accommodate your needs and preferences.
Alcohol: When we gather for Table events, we ask the attendees to be active participants. We will serve your first glass of wine as you arrive, but we invite our dinner guests to bring wine, beer, or their cocktail of choice that will pair well with the distinct menu.
Locations: Each dinner will be hosted by partners of the Table Community and we ask you to respect our friends’ property. In addition, while we want to showcase gardens and garden produce, we also want to showcase the thing we value as much as food: people. We invite you to experience hospitality and community at its finest.
Seating: We intend the dinners to be intimate events with lively conversation. However, COVID-19 is forcing all of us to do things slightly differently. This season all seating will be reserved, cleaned, and spaced appropriately. We can accommodate tables of 2 to 8. Children are welcome at the table but may not be left unsupervised. Because of the limited number of seats, we cannot offer discounts for children.
Reservations: Seats can be reserved on a first come, first served basis. As demand grows, we will adjust accordingly.
Cancellations: If you must cancel, your reservation will be refunded if you contact us at least 10 calendar days in advance of the dinner. A $10 processing fee will be applied to each cancelled seat.
Phones: We understand that many of you have important people you need to stay in touch with while you are at dinner, and that you will need to keep your phone at hand. We simply ask that if you need to use your phone, you step away from the table to do so, and that you please keep your phones and other gadgets off the table. Thank you.
