Taste of Madison – Preview
We are looking for volunteers to help with the Taste of Madison, which will be an amazing event and memorable experience on the Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day weekend. Each volunteer will receive three food tickets per each four hour shift for any of our dishes (you can give them to friends as well). We are requesting a minimum of a four hour shift .
The Mobile Farmers Market will be bringing Native foods to the Taste of Madison for what is almost surely the first time in the major event’s history. Drawing between 80,000-100,000 people, this event will be an unparalleled opportunity to expand awareness of our amazing foods to a completely new audience whose only association with Native foods is likely frybread and Indian tacos, if anything.
Our three dishes are:
- Native Salad: wild rice, white corn, and traditional beans tossed in a wild berry and maple vinaigrette with blueberries and diced apples
- Blue Corn Coated Perch over Wild Rice
- Wild Rice Brat: brats made by Underground Butcher with Nett Lake wild rice served on buns from Madison Sourdough
