FOSTORIA,OH- The Fostoria Area Chamber of Commerce will host its first ever Farm to Table dinner.  The dinner, presented by Reineke Family Dealerships and Mr. and Mrs. Bill J. Bowling, will be held right on Main Street from 100 to 125 North Main Street and will be held Saturday, September 16 from 5:30-8:30 p.m.

The dinner will help kick off the Chamber’s Shop Small, Shop Local initiative and will feature locally sourced foods prepared by Birchaven and Independence House Executive Chef Timothy Cooper.

“We are very excited for this event as guests will be amazed they are actually dining on the street.  Thanks to the creative efforts of Linda Bowling and Paula Walter, the event decorators, guests will be transported into a fall themed dining experience,” said Sarah Stephens Krupp, Chamber Director.

“Fostoria has a strong agribusiness base and we thought a Farm to Table dinner celebrating the season’s harvest would be a great way to kick off our Shop Small, Shop Local campaign while highlighting our local farmers and agribusiness community”.  According to Stephens Krupp, the campaign aims to educate the community about the importance of shopping at small local business.  “Money spent at small local business not only keeps businesses operational in our community but it greatly improves our local economy.”

The event will also feature wines from Chateau Tabeau winery.  Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased by calling the Chamber office at 419-435-0846 or via the online registration site.
