WINNSBORO (June 23, 2016) – If you missed it, you missed the event of the season in downtown Winnsboro.

About 75 people attended Winnsboro’s first annual Farm-to-Table dinner sponsored and organized by the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce. It was the kick-off event for Fairfield County’s third annual Ag + Art Tour.

The evening began at 6 p.m. on the promenade behind the Clock Tower with a strumming guitar, a wine bar, iced watermelon punch, appetizers served from large trays before dinner – and, ah, the dinner! Seated at long formal tables that stretched the length of the promenade, diners enjoyed choice local produce prepared by local chefs and served by the most attentive volunteer wait staff.

And all this was followed with Norma Branham’s sour creme pound cake served with o-so-sweet fresh-picked peaches and blueberries.

“It was just a wonderful evening and the food was so delicious,” Chamber president Terry Vickers said. “It was so much fun and I think everyone who came had a lovely time. It was a joint effort by a lot of people in the community who donated food, time and lots of work. I would like to thank all of our citizens who made it possible.”
