The Westport Farmers Market will sponsor a "Fork It Over" fundraiser with local farm-to-table chefs on Saturday, Jan. 28, at Gilbertie's Herb Gardens, 7 Sylvan Lane.

The "casual evening" will give diners the opportunity to mingle with the chefs while enjoying a seasonal tasting menu paired with wines and listening to light jazz, according to a release from the market.

The chefs will include; Michel Nischan, Dressing Room; Bill Taibe, leFarm; Tim LaBant, the Schoolhouse at Cannondale; Matt Storch, Match, and John Barricelli, SoNo Baking Co. & Cafe. Pairings will be executed by Fountainhead Wines & Distillations.

The market, a non-profit organization, is open year-round and works with farmers, vendors and other groups throughout the community to promote local, sustainable food, the release states.

Proceeds from the event will support Fairfield County food programs coordinated with groups such as Staples High School, the Gillespie Center and the Bridgeport Rescue Mission.

Tickets, at $150 each, go on sale Tuesday, Jan. 3.
