The Santa Barbara Convivium has alerted us to an event tomorrow (Saturday), February 12, 2005, at the Downtown Farmers Market. (The Downtown Farmers Market is located at the corner of Cota and Santa Barbara Streets.)
From 10:00 am to 12:00 pm the Farmers Market will host a Love Trail and Raffle. Twelve local chefs will prepare aphrodisiac foods from Farmers Market ingredients for your pleasure. This event is a fundraiser for the Farmers Market Taste Education and community outreach efforts, supporting guided tours of the markets for schoolchildren, cooking demonstrations and samplings, bilingual recipes and outreach to neighborhood clinics, etc…
Cost of event: $25 per person for full tasting and raffle entry. Individual tastes can be purchased at the booths for $3 to $5. Raffle tickets are $5 each, 5 for $20. Prizes include getaways, romantic dinners, wine, and spa treatments.
If your pre-Valentine’s Day plans include Santa Barbara, add the Farmers Market to your schedule!
