2015 Restaurant Weeks:
Farm to Fork: July 19-24
South Jersey’s “Restaurant Row” hosts Farm to Fork Restaurant Week
The Collingswood Farmers' Market is the reason to celebrate Farm to Fork Restaurant Week in Collingswood
The bustling crowds of Collingswood Farmers Market have one more thing to be happy about: not only are they getting fresh produce and fruit from local farmers every week (often just picked that morning), but in July Collingswood’s prolific restaurants will spotlight the Market in a weeklong celebration of what NJ farmers have to offer! During Collingswood “Farm to Fork Restaurant Week” On July 19 to 24, participating restaurants all offer feature Jersey produce and in multi course menus at discounted prices (prix fixe). “You can’t beat the freshness or the value,” explains Chef Jim Marino of Bistro di Marino.
The chefs themselves – from a dozen different restaurants – can be seen every week at the market, their white coats moving and weaving among the stalls. Several of them, including Chef Nunzio Patruno of Nunzio’s Ristorante Rustico and Chef Mark Smith of The Tortilla Press even host ‘shopping’ tours, taking groups of guests with them on their walk through the Market, talking with farmers and explaining what they are purchasing and how it will be used in their soon to be served lunch.
Though “Farm to Fork” is celebrated by many restaurants, “None have the advantage that we enjoy in Collingswood.” explains Chef Franco Lombardo of Sapori. “Having the farmers market in town cements our relationships with the farmers and everyone benefits.”
