The sixth annual Artisans’ Fare: A Fest for Foodies will return Nov. 11 at the SullivanMunce Cultural Center.

The event will feature 25 artisans, including Aahaa Chai, Artisano’s Oils and Spices, B-Happy Peanut Butter, FARMBloomington, Liberation Roasting, Preservation and New Old-Standard Baking Company.

“The unique thing about this event is that we have gathered top Indiana artisans together in one place,” event co-chair Patricia Scott said.

The Artisans’ Fare will offer a unique opportunity for attendees to sample, chat and purchase directly from some of Indiana’s premier food and drink artisans. Each artisan offers small batch, hand-crafted, high-quality items that are not typically found in stores. For the first time, the event will include fresh designer potted topiaries of rosemary, olive and cypress.

The event will include a wine bar, craft beer and champagne, music by The Alex Young Trio, a silent auction and heavy hors d’oeuvres.

The hor d’oeuvres menu includes oven-roasted pumpkin bisque with pomegranate cream and micro greens, marinated buffalo mozzarella with smoked slab bacon and sun-dried tomatoes and dark chocolate mousse with a crisp ginger cinnamon cone.

Scott said the Artisans’ Fare is a great opportunity to collect unique corporate gifts and items for friends and family members. Items range in price from $5 to hundreds of dollars.

The Artisans’ Fare will be open to the public for shopping-only opportunities prior to the gala from  4 to 5:45 p.m. for a general admission price of $10. Tickets to the Artisans’ Fare Gala from 6 to 9 p.m. are $55.

“This event is a celebration of food and artisans with great appetizers, beverages and live music,” Scott said. “In a word, it is festive and the perfect way to kick off the holiday season. It is a party, with shopping, so there is constant mingling and never a dull moment.”

All proceeds from the event will benefit the SullivanMunce Cultural Center. The mission of the SullivanMunce Cultural Center is to provide the community with quality exhibits and classes in art, history and genealogy.
