Penn Street Market Debuts Farm-to-Table “Pop-Up” Bistro
Aug 31, 2015 04:44PM
An innovative farm-to-table venue, Urban Bistro, is making its debut at Penn Street Market, in the downtown improvement district, in Reading. At the close of each Thursday market day in September, a fresh air, outdoor dinner feast will be prepared by local chef Adam Cocuzza, co-founder of Say Cheese Restaurant, located in downtown Reading.
The dinners will feature a three-course meal using fresh, locally sourced ingredients from the market vendors and artisans. Reservations are required, and tickets include dinner, live music and free garage parking provided by the Reading Parking Authority. Seating begins at 5:30 p.m.
Sponsoring the farm-to-table dinners are the Downtown Improvement District, Gayatri Wellness, Momma Patel’s, Kreative Corner and Natural Awakenings magazine. Proceeds from the Urban Bistro will be given to the I-LEAD Charter School, in Reading. The school provides students in grades 9 through 12 who are disconnected from the school system the opportunity to re-engage with their education, through the integration of life skills and academic achievement.
