Upcoming: Common Grounds Cornucopia




This 5th Annual Cornucopia event, hosted by the Common Grounds Farm Stand, pops up in Myers Park this Saturday to rally for Charlotte's poor and homeless through a food-centric fundraiser for the Urban Ministry Center.

Common Grounds is a seasonal farm stand that provides locally sourced produce and artisan goods to the public with an aim toward the common good. Every penny collected at the Common Grounds farm stand goes directly to the Urban Ministry Center to help support the multitude of services and programs for one of Charlotte's most vulnerable populations.

This year, Cornucopia has recruited a number of tasty participants for an expanded take on the annual event. The food festivus will feature a vendor village including Lenny Boy Kombucha, The Naked Pig, Your Mom's Donuts, and The Scone Shop. Joining the fundraiser will be artists David French, Liz Saintsing, & The Painted Elephant.

No event would be complete without a food truck, right? The Maryland Crab & Co food truck will be on site serving up traditional Maryland style seafood and the band The Wicked Powers will provide the soundtrack.

There's more. Guests can bid on a live auction featuring a killer lineup of restaurants and food businesses including Barringtons, Block & Grinder, Chef Alyssa's Kitchen, Mimosa Grill, The Tin Kitchen, Harvest Moon & Grille, Upstream, Passion8 Bistro, Reid's Fine Foods, Heritage Food & Drink, and The Wine Bar at Foxcroft.

The farm stand cup overfloweth. In this case, eating is caring. The Common Grounds Farm Stand is located at 119 Huntley Place Charlotte, NC 28209 in Myers Park. Admission is free this Saturday, Nov. 23, 9 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
