** Harvest Dinner will be held indoors at Whitaker & Atlantic **

Mother Nature has made our decision. With over 80% chance of rain and thunderstorms forecast for 7-10 PM, we’ve decided to hold the event indoors at Whitaker & Atlantic, Chef Coleen Speaks’ fabulous event space. We’re excited to gather and celebrate another season of growth at Raleigh City Farm.

New Location: Whitaker & Atlantic
