Schenectady Greenmarket will be hosting its annual Local Harvest Dinner once again on November 17, at Schenectady County Community College.

For the seriously bargain price of $50.00 per person, guests will be treated to local foods grown and made by Schenectady Greenmarket vendors and prepared by SCCC faculty and students in the Hotel, Culinary Arts & Tourism department.

The menu has not yet been finalized, but among other things, Chef Christopher Tanner (SCCC instructor and Certified Executive Chef) has promised a delectable-sounding Charcuterie Station:

  • Vegetable terrine and rillettes
  • Charcuterie Trio – Porchetta di testa with fines herbes salad; Black Forest Ham; Herbes de Provence-infused Chicken Galantine
  • Smoked salmon and Russian gravlax
Harvest Dinner guests will also enjoy fine wine, live music, and a yet-unnamed dessert.  There will also be a silent auction.  All proceeds from the Local Harvest Dinner will benefit Schenectady Greenmarket, making it possible for the organization to continue to bring fresh, local food to Schenectady year-round.  If you are interested in purchasing tickets, please send me an email – I happen to be on the Greenmarket’s Board of Directors, and I’d be happy to sell you a ticket or two! Tickets will also be available at the Market Table on market days.
