Continuing its leadership within the sustainable, local food movement, Motor Supply Co. Bistro will host its biannual Harvest Week at Motor Supply event from June 11 to 16. During Summer Harvest Week at Motor Supply, unique, farm-to-table dishes featuring dueling ingredients from local, sustainable farms will be added to Motor Supply’s a la carte dinner menu each evening.
“Meet the Farmer Happy Hour” will kick off the week-long celebration on Tuesday, June 11 from 5:30 p.m. until 7 p.m., when farm owners will be on deck at Motor Supply’s historic bar and communal table to chat with guests in a casual environment.
The Vista flagship restaurant supports organic and near-organic farmers in the Midlands by regularly buying their meats, poultry and produce for the daily-changing lunch, dinner and brunch menus at Motor Supply. Motor Supply’s signature cocktail menu also reflects seasonal, farm-to-shaker ingredients, inspired by what’s available to head barman Josh Streetman.
The first Harvest Week event took place during Fall 2011, followed by Summer and Fall 2012. Summer 2013 will mark the fourth occurrence of this signature event.
“We make it a priority to maintain working relationships with small, sustainable farms in the Columbia area,” says Motor Supply Co. Bistro owner Eddie Wales. “Harvest Week at Motor Supply is our way of saying thanks to these farmers for providing our customers with the best-tasting ingredients on the market.”
