Join Greener Partners on Sunday, November 4th for The World’s Greatest Farmer Showdown, a unique, family-friendly event to celebrate local farmers.

There will be live music from the Whiskeyhickon Boys, kiddie crafts and delicious farm-fresh food and drink from vendors including Victory Brewing, Farm Formage, Pulse Desserts and our good friend Maris McClellan will be on hand from Food In Jars.
