Eat in the Street Becomes Tradition

On Sunday, September 18, Walnut Street in downtown Milford lite up with an evening of local cuisine, drinks and merriment when Downtown Milford Inc. hosted Eat in the Street. Carrying on a tradition for its forth year , event goers enjoyed a farm-to-table dinner, literally on Walnut Street as tables and chairs spanned across the Mispillion River. Aimed at strengthening the community through highlighting what downtown Milford has to offer, the event raised money for Downtown Milford Inc.

SaraKate Hammer, President of Downtown Milford Inc., was inspired to create  this event from an article she read online about the Jonesborough Farmers Market Farm To Table Dinner in Tennessee.

The evening began with a turkey peach chili from T.A. Farms and seafood ceviche and duck confit spring rolls severed by Abbott’s Grill and Arena’s Deli & Bar. As event goers began to mingle, libations were served by local brewery Mispillion River Brewing including The Lighter Side Cream Ale, ZJ Imperial IPA and BA Collaboration. Dancers from the Diamond Dance Company entertained guests with several performance as diners prepared to enjoy the main course, Reid angus bbq smoked brisket with grilled prawn skewer and sides of baked beans, Totem farms roasted squash and apple jalapeño sauce. Entertainment for the rest of the evening was delivered by Matt Lafferty & Friends and the Music School of Delaware’s Pegasus Trio with Chris Braddockon on guitar , Jeanmarie Braddock on flute and Mindy Bowman on violin.  Dolce Bakery & Coffee Shop wrapped up the evening with their local favorite, pumpkin bars and Petit Sweets served carrot cake and apple cake pops.

“The event is not a unique concept, but our partners make the event unique to our town,” said Hammer. “…these people are the part of the fabric of our great little town. The uniqueness is in the way they all come together to create something really fun for the community.”

Hammer believes that this year’s event in Milford was a success by several measures. In addition to raising money for the organization that is aimed at economic development and tourism efforts in downtown Milford, the forth Eat In The Street allowed participants to experience what makes Milford a unique destination.

“The enthusiasm of the committee members comes from their dedication to the mission and vision of DMI, to make downtown a better place to work, play and live,” said Hammer. “It’s an investment in our community that we can easily see the returns on.”
