Presented by Taste the Local Difference at Ramada Marquette, Marquette MI

Oct 12 2019
MQT Local Food Fest

Taste The Local Difference is excited to present the MQT Local Food Fest, a farm-to-table celebration, honoring and connecting all links of the Upper Peninsula’s local food system, from farmers to eaters and everyone in-between.

The event will feature a silent auction of Farmers Harvest Baskets & other local goods, interactive educational trivia and most importantly the 3rd Annual NMU Alumni Culinary Competition, where all guests will help choose the chef who will take home the coveted Traveling Pineapple Trophy! We have seven chefs competing and each is asked to make two appetizers: one vegetarian & one of the chef’s choice. There will be a cash bar featuring local beer, wine & spirits.

Ticket sales from our event goes right back to great organizations like Partridge Creek Farm who helps with Farm-to-School programs
