Taste of the Market [Slideshow]

Hemingway’s Wine and Bistro is one of the many restaurants and Columbia Farmers’ Market vendors to provide and prepare food for this year’s Taste of the Market, which is a fundraiser for the market pavilion campaign. This is Hemingway’s second year participating in the event. Dawn Vaughn, co-owner of Hemingway’s, said it’s a great way to show people that Hemingway’s is a supporter of the market and locally grown food. “I think that it will really show people we are local worthy,” Vaughn said. Hemingway’s prepares dishes using beef from Missouri Legacy Beef and mushrooms from a market vendor.
