“The Farm to Table Dinner is always a blast and a great way to celebrate our farmers,” said Main Street Portsmouth Executive Director Joseph Pratt. “We always enjoy a great dinner with an amazing meal from scratch and an interesting pie auction.”
Pratt says the bidding for homemade pies always gets the crowd buzzing.
“The pie auction is handled by Donnie Rachford and is always fun,” Pratt said. “We have pies donated by the market vendors, artisanal pies, other desserts, and more. It is interesting to see how high the pies go for and how people compete for certain pies.”
