Join friends of the MIFM for an evening of food and fun featuring special guest Ben Friedman, co-founder of Homegrown Sustainable Sandwich Shop. Tickets are going fast, order online today. Your contribution will help make MIFM 2015 the best ever!

Rather than exhaust our volunteers with a silent or live auction, we’ve decided to try a couple new formats this year that we think you’ll really like!   Take a look at the marvelous items provided by our generous donors! Donor Catalog 2015

Local chefs have graciously signed our insulated market bags for you to store many items this upcoming market season. Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase the bags for $20 or $50, signed by a local chef such as Maria Hines, Ethan Stowell, Tom Douglas, or last year’s host “Chef in the Hat,”Thierry Rautureau.

These great bags will have a random selection of prizes within them. The values inside will range from $15-$200, so the more bags you buy, the more chances you have to win wonderful prizes! You could get a $15 gift certificate to the newly opened Homegrown or a class for 2 at the Hot Stove Society operated by Tom Douglas.  Or, how about a cookbook from Macrina Bakery or Lisa Dupar Catering?

Chances of a Lifetime – 

Somebody’s got to win – why not YOU?  Purchase as many raffle tickets as you like through the evening.  You can drop your ticket(s) into the drawing for one of five (5) great packages: ‘Backyard BBQ,’ ‘Date Night,’ ‘Day in Seattle,’ ‘Friends in Town’ or ‘Wine-o.’

In the Backyard BBQ you can find a gift card at Costco for $50 or a 24 pack from Hilliard’s Beer in Ballard. A Day in Seattle consists of a trip to the Woodland Park Zoo and a visit to the EMP to crush the drums in their sound proof rooms. Friends in Town? Show them a good time with a tour of the Woodinville wineries of your choice with a limo for up to 10 people from NW Eco Events. For your Date Night, enjoy options like a quick dinner at Sushi Joa on Mercer Island or a long night with entertainment from Teatro Zin Zanni.

The market opens June 7th, see you there!
