Du Quoin Chamber of Commerce’s Farm to Table Dinner sponsored by Kremer Plumbing, Beth Thompson and State Farm Insurance, Perry County Farm Bureau and Marshall Browning Hospital was held on Thursday, July 11 in beautiful downtown Du Quoin. The event — growing in popularity — showcases the beautiful, historic downtown in hopes of educating community members about the importance of eating locally grown foods and spending their dollars locally as well.
An entire city block on Main Street was the setting for this truly unique experience. Linen-covered tables complete with real plates and flatware line the street. Social hour featured local beer and wine along with local music provided by Matt Basler.
Food was prepared by local restaurants such as W Restaurant & Lounge, St. Nicholas Brewing Company, Kalin’s Café and Red Hawk Golf and Grille and used local ingredients supplied by Baked on Division, Don Hirsch Farm, Lick Creek Pork and Beef, Flyway Family Farms, Cahokia Rice, Feather’s Farm, Marcoot Creamery, One Circle Eco Farm and Flamm Orchard. Name Brand Creations provided fresh flowers for all the tables. Les Browser of SI Drones of Herrin provided aerial footage of the Du Quoin Chamber of Commerce’s Farm to Table Dinner.
