Have a taste of the guilt-free & good life at The Lufkin Farmer's Market Farm Feast.

East Texas farmers have been producing some beautiful produce already this summer and Farm Feast is an event to show it all off. The East Texas' culinary event, Lufkin's Farm Feast, will give foodies like me a chance to try some amazing locally sourced food at a dinner celebrating East Texas farmers.

The event starts with a wine-and-cheese hour including live music at 6:00 p.m. A sit-down, four-course meal with wine pairings starts at 7pm. Local chefs will use fresh, flavorful ingredients from farms within a 100-mile radius of Lufkin, and Brookshire Brothers will provide specialty cheeses, wines and beers.

Organizers describe the event as "snappy casual," blending an elegant dinner with a fun, laid-back atmosphere.

"Our fall farm-to-table dinner features local chefs collaborating with local farmers to create a menu straight from the land," said Tara Watson-Watkins, executive director of the Lufkin Convention and Visitors Bureau. "Just like our previous summer and fall Farm Feasts, our featured farmers will have booths, and there will be a set of recipe cards with each place setting. Guests will receive recipes directly from the chefs who prepared the food, and they can buy fresh ingredients directly from the farmers who grew it."

Tickets are $50 each or $500 for a table of 8. Call 936-633-0359 to reserve your tickets today! It will be held at the Angelina County Farmers Market, 2107 S Medford Drive, and runs until about 10 pm.

If you choose to sit this one out, we may just have to send some of our people to let you know if this event is one you can't miss next time around.
