The Downtown Orangeburg Revitalization Association held its 3rd Annual Taste of the Market, A Farm to Table Dinner Experience on June 6.
Presented by Fogle’s Piggly Wiggly, the event delivered a sensational locally sourced meal in Downtown Orangeburg to more than 230 attendees. All proceeds received will support the Downtown Orangeburg Farmers’ Market.
The meal itself was a four-course dinner, prepared by Dupre Catering.
DORA Executive Director Candice Roberson said, “This event has become a local favorite over the past two years. Attendees get to enjoy a sensational meal in our historic district while also providing them a chance to support local agriculture and our Orangeburg Farmers’ Market - a win-win for all involved.”
Due to the strong possibility of inclement weather throughout the day, the event was relocated to Sulit Luxe Affairs. The decision was made in an effort to provide the most enjoyable experience to ticket holders. Sulit Luxe Affairs is owned and operated by Jennifer Chapman and is located in Downtown Orangeburg at 1005 Broughton St.
Guests arrived at 6:30 pm to enjoy passed appetizers and specialty drinks by Salley’s Greatest Syrups and Jams.
Sponsors of the event were:
- Title Sponsor Fogle’s Piggy Wiggly
- Event Sponsors The Times and Democrat and South State Bank
- Table Sponsors Servpro of Orangeburg, AgSouth Farm Credit and the Orangeburg County Development Commission.
- Friends of the Market Sponsors Ford’s Tire Pros and Orangeburg Milling Company.
