Green City Market's A (Mostly) Veggie Affair celebrates the vibrant flavors of our farmers' local, seasonal produce. Nine local chefs will represent #TeamVeggie and put their best veggie dishes forward to square off against the ever-so-lustful #TeamMeat dishes from GCM Junior Board chefs. Guests will make a choice to “Cheat on Meat or Go Whole Beast!”

This year, the event introduces a VIP hour from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. in which a limited number of guests will have early access to try the offerings of the chefs, bartenders and brewers participating. #TeamMeat will also serve VIP attendees an exclusive dish for this hour while Maple & Ash serve a specialty cocktail with Moët & Chandon Imperial Brut and Belvedere Vodka.
