FREEHOLD – Monmouth County is holding its first ever “Grown in Monmouth” restaurant week, from July 28 through Aug. 4.
Participating restaurants will feature at least one dish that contains ingredients grown in Monmouth County.
“The working relationship between restaurants and local growers is so vital to the overall economic climate of the County,” Monmouth County Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone said. He is liaison to the Division of Economic Development. “The 46 restaurants already signed up are from all different regions of the County and will offer an array of delicious dishes that feature ingredients that are grown in Monmouth County.”
Those restaurants participating will be listed online. New ones will be added daily. The directory will feature restaurants, farmers markets, community supported agriculture and gardens, and produce distributors.
“The Freeholders sought to promote both the agricultural community and restaurants by showcasing the respective businesses through one, weeklong event,” Freeholder Lillian G. Burry, liaison to the Board of Agriculture, said. “Restaurant Week will surely deliver creative cuisine that will have residents and visitors coming back for seconds.”
