September welcomed with two tasty events

August 20, 2012 by  

For those in the Vero Beach area who are finding it hard to say goodbye to the summer, there are a couple of activities to enjoy that will lessen the pain and see in September.

The Farmers’ Market Beachside on Ocean Drive will take place on September 1 from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm and the market is open every Saturday year-round. It offers a variety of artisan breads and spices, fresh vegetables, fresh fruit, organic poultry, and meats. While it does take place all year, there are some products only available during the summer months, so people will want to get them while they can. In addition, live music is always provided by David Potter.

Later on the same day, the End of Summer Luau will take place at the Cobalt Restaurant in Kimpton’s Vero Beach Hotel and Spa from 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children aged 12 and under. It will be a Hawaiian inspired buffet meal prepared by chef Mike Vanbuskirk. It might also be a good networking opportunity for local business individuals in Vero Beach. While it is a social event, arranging for a business card printing order in advance would be a good strategy. A business card can easily be exchanged over dinner, or even at the buffet table, and several can always be tucked in a pocket or purse for easy access.

The two food-themed events show that there is no need for residents to get the post-summer blues just yet.
