Due to popular demand, Tour de Farm, the new dining experience from Scott Pampuch of Corner Table Restaurant, announces a fifth event to be hosted on the beautiful grounds of the Walker Art Center this summer. Since three of the original four Tour de Farm events have sold out, this event will give more people the chance to celebrate urban agriculture, as well as encourage them to eat locally and seasonally and support local farms.
Sponsored by the Walker Art Center, the memorable and unique event set on the hill overlooking the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden and skyline will allow diners to enjoy a five-course meal created by five local award-winning chefs using local and seasonal food. Greens, herbs and additional in-season produce will be provided by Youth Farm & Market Project.
