The main course, a meal to be served on a 200-foot table in downtown Rockmart, will be headlined by fresh fermented kraut with duck egg and sourdough toasts, stuffed sweet Georgia candy roasters, garlic herb beef, chicken halves with muscadine thyme sauce, smoked root vegetables, marinated kale salad with edible flowers and lemon honey dressing, and locally made herbal soda and tea. These dishes will be made from ingredients offered by Spreading Oaks Farm, Sand Creek Farm, That Foreign Chick’s Bakery, Footehill Farmhouse, Bella Vita Mushrooms, Fitzgereald Fruit Farm, Timberland Farm, Five Cedars Farm, and Morning Glory Farm.
“We invite all Polk County residents to sit at a gorgeous 200-foot table that will line Marble Street in beautiful historic downtown Rockmart,” Kirkpatrick said. “There’ll be mismatched china, twinkling lights, live music, a silent auction, and great conversation with family and friends.
Two-types of okra, quail eggs with mustard and proscuttio, local cheese toasts with herbs and fruit preserves, and herb water will be served as appetizers during the 5 p.m. farm tour that kicks the event off. These dishes will be made from ingredients provided by Footehill Farmhouse, Sand Creek Farms, Dewey Roberts, That Foreign Chick’s Bakery, Morning Glory Farm, and Chef Suga.
Desert finishes the evening with various freshly baked cookies, apple crumb cake, carrot cake, and locally roasted coffee made possible by Chick N’ Scratch, South Marble Coffee House, and That Foreign Chick’s Bakery.
The event has been made possible through the county’s faithful customers and the market’s sponsors. Floyd Medical Center currently sits as a major sponsor, but businesses Now and Then, Chick N’ Scratch, Triangle Foods, Soli’s, South Marble Coffee House, and Dallas Chiropractic Life Center now offer help, too.
The various dishes will be made from ingredients available at the Rockmart Farmers Market every Thursday from 2 through 6 p.m. on the city’s Water Street.
