AUGUSTA — The Augusta Downtown Alliance and local food producers from the Farmers Market at Mill Park will host its farm-to-table dinner from 3 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 14, in Market Square Park.

The meal will include five courses, including local breads, cheeses, bruschetta, salad, a choice of Chicken Galantine or Summer Vegetable Primavera, and blueberry bread pudding and ice cream novelties for dessert.

The menu for the event will be made with Maine-grown ingredients, and the farmers who grew the ingredients will be on hand as well to talk about their experiences farming in Maine. And to double-down on localness, the meal will be cooked by chefs from Water Street establishments: Ehrin Simanski from Lisa’s Legit Burritos, Wyatt Shorey and Steven Dumas of Aunt Gin’s and the soon-to-open Otto’s by the River, and Tina Charest from Charlemagne’s Bar and Lounge. A cash bar will be provided by the folks from Charlemagne’s. There will also be entertainment by Michael Reny, vocalist and contemporary acoustic guitarist.
