Emporia Farmers Market to Host Dirty Kanza Pre-Race Palooza Fundraiser
The Annual Palooza Fundraiser for the Emporia Farmers Market is being planned for the 2015 Dirty Kanza event. Market volunteers will showcase locally sourced foods and welcome gravel riders to our community on Friday, May 29. The meal will include a variety of dishes featuring beef, buffalo and poultry grown right here in the Flint Hills, as well pasta and in-season vegetables direct from the farmers market.
There will be no ticket pre-sales this year. Riders may purchase tickets at the door at a cost of $12 per plate. The ticket will include chicken and noodles with mashed potatoes, a grass-fed beef dish by Graze the Prairie, swiss steak, and creamy herbed pasta, as well as a sample of buffalo. Rolls will be provided by Emporia Subways. The meal will include salad, a vegetable selection, and homemade desserts such as pie, apple cobbler and cake.
All proceeds from this event benefit the operations and educational programs of the Emporia Farmers Market.
