Dinner at Sub Rosa with the Birdhouse Farmers Market

Eat well for a good cause.

When Oregon Hill’s William Byrd Community House was forced to close, its Tuesday farmers market ended, too. But its vendors didn’t want see it disappear, so they joined together and moved it up the street, renaming it the Birdhouse Farmers Market. It’s now open every Tuesday from 3-6:30 p.m. behind the Randolph Community Center swimming pool at 1507 Grayland Ave.

There’s a little more involved in running it now. “The Birdhouse Farmers Market operates solely on funds derived from vendor fees,” says Amy Hicks of Amy’s Garden, “which are kept reasonable to enable incubator businesses and beginning/small farmers to attend.”

On Sunday, July 10, at 6 p.m., the market and Sub Rosa Bakery will throw a fundraising dinner to help keep those fees down. It’s a chance to experience the farmers' wares transformed into a multi-course meal and served family-style. Tickets are $100, including drinks and gratuity.
