Farm-to-Fork Restaurant Weeks
Farm-to-Fork Restaurant Weeks presented by Raley’s is a celebration of the region’s premiere dining destinations and the bounty of seasonal ingredients that surround us. The event will showcase the culinary powerhouse that is the Sacramento region, with area restaurants hosting special events, menus and opportunities to meet the farmers, winemakers and brewers who make Sacramento America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital.
The dining options will span Sacramento’s downtown core, as well as other regional spots including Roseville, El Dorado Hills, Lodi, Folsom, Davis, West Sacramento, Elk Grove and more.
Be sure to visit participating restaurants (full list available here) for your chance to win two tickets to the sold out Tower Bridge Dinner presented by Cadillac or gift cards to local farm-to-fork restaurants.
The more you dine, the more chances you have to find a Golden Ticket. For more info on the ticket giveaway, click here.
