Join Nourish Knoxville for our second annual Tomato Jam, a drinks competition featuring some of Knoxville’s best bartenders and East Tennessee’s finest tomatoes. Knoxville bartenders will create their best tomato-based cocktail and patrons will get 4oz samples of 8 cocktails, then vote for their favorite!
OliBea will provide locally-sourced brunch bites. Plus, live music and games on the lawn!
This second annual event features special guest Brian Bartels, a beverage director for such West Village hotspots as Jeffrey’s Grocery, Joseph Leonard, Fedora, Perla, and Bar Sardine. Bartels will sign copies of his book, The Bloody Mary: The Lore and Legend of a Cocktail Classic, with Recipes for Brunch and Beyond, and serve as a celebrity judge for the cocktail contest.
Tickets are $40 each or $35 each when you buy 4. Available on TicketWeb or at the information booth at the Market Square Farmers’ Market.
New this year: VIP Experience! $75 gets you a seat at the table in a private area of the event, with a full brunch by OliBea, wait staff, carafe of each cocktail, and special treats. No waiting in line for samples! Update: VIP is SOLD OUT! A few seats remain for our Harvester Level Friends.
