Platters of heirloom tomatoes like these colorful fruits will be served family-style at the ninth annual Village Feast, which begins at noon Saturday, Aug. 24, in Davis’ Central Park. Tickets are $75 per person in advance, and are available at the Davis Food Co-op, 620 G St.; online at www.brownpapertickets.org and at the Davis Farmers Market on Saturday mornings. Tickets are $85 the day of the event, if available; past events have sold out.
The Provencal-inspired menu will include savory grilled lamb with fresh herbs, heirloom tomato salad and roasted vegetables with garlic aioli. There will be music and a silent auction. All proceeds will benefit Yolo Farm to Fork and Davis Farm to School programs, which support maintaining school gardens, recycling programs and local food in school cafeterias.
In keeping with the “Le Grand Aioli” tradition, participants will bring their own dinnerware, flatware and cloth napkins.
