This wonderful evening is sponsored by Le Pain Quotidien (LPQ) and will serve as a fundraiser to support our Newport Beach Farmers’ Market at Lido Marina Village. With the help of LPQ, local chefs have provided over a dozen cooking demonstrations to the local community at our farmers’ market. Supporting your local farmers’ market helps preserve California’s rural livelihoods and farmland, stimulates the local economy, and supports a healthy community for all to thrive.

*Tickets are tax-deductible. All proceeds go directly to Sprouts of Promise, our 501c3 non-profit that runs the market.
