AUGUST. ISSUE 71. 2018
Marcels Culinary Experience
August signifies the end of lazy days and the return of school, schedules, and routines. However, that doesn't mean we don't have exciting things still happening around town and in the store! Mark your calendars for some fun and exciting classes, events, and sales. 
 
Sidewalk sale may be over but there are still a few deals you won't want to miss. If you've been eyeing the Kamado Joe all summer long, now is the time to pick one up. And with the kids going back to school, you'll want to take advantage of our August food sale. The transition to busy school schedules will be smoother than ever with these meal solutions.
 
We are excited to share an exclusive opportunity with Marché to visit one of our favorite local dairy farms. Be sure to read about it below. And we end this month with the Sounds on the Street outdoor music festival presented by the Alliance of Downtown Glen Ellyn. Bring your friends and neighbors out to this annual event and soak up the last of our warm summer nights with fabulous music. 
 
There's still lots to learn in the kitchen this month, so be sure to check out our featured August cooking classes too!
AUGUST EVENTS & HAPPENINGS
MARCHÉ DAY TRIP TO PRAIRIE FRUITS FARM IN CHAMPAIGN, IL - SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 23RD 8 AM - 6 PM
 
Join Marché for an amazing day trip to Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery. This sustainable farm and creamery, owned by Wes Jarrell and Leslie Cooperband, makes artisan, farmstead goat cheeses and goat milk gelato from its herd of 80 milking goats. They also host Slow Food, farm-to-table meals, and other agri-tourism events.
 
Our day will begin on a luxurious coach bus with a light continental breakfast and screening of "A Farmer's Road",  the 2016 documentary about Leslie, Wes and Prairie Fruits Farm. When we arrive, we will meet the goats and be led on a tour featuring the farm and cheesemaking operations.  Later, we'll enjoy a delicious, chef-prepared farm to table lunch with a selection of Marché wines, and have the opportunity to buy cheeses right from the dairy before we head back to Glen Ellyn. The all-inclusive cost for the entire trip is $150 per person.
 
Space is limited for this amazing day and we want to accommodate as many people as possible so if you are interested, register todayNo refunds or credits will be available for this event after Tuesday, August 21st.  Feel free to call us with any questions (630) 790-8890.
