VAIL — The Vail Farmers’ Market & Art Show recently announced the second season of its Farm to Table Dinner Series, featuring Vail chefs and farmers and a sampling of fresh, local ingredients. The series consists of three dinners throughout the summer.

New this year, the first dinner, on Saturday, June 25, will feature special guest chefs from Vail’s sister city San Miguel de Allende, Mexico: Executive Chef Carlos Zamora Larios and chef Donnie Masterson. Larios and Masterson will cook alongside Executive Chef Shawn Miller, of Terra Bistro, and Executive Chef Julian Smith, of bol.

This first Farm to Table Dinner is part of Vail’s weeklong series of cultural exchange events with San Miguel de Allende. Larios hails from the restaurant MOXI in San Miguel by Enrique Olvera, which offers original interpretations of Mexican classics using authentic local flavors. Masterson, from The Restaurant, is known for bringing global comfort food to San Miguel, and he is devoted to seeking out the highest quality ingredients, working with local farmers, ranchers and artisanal cheese makers.

Local farms and vendors from the Vail Farmers’ Market will be highlighted in each dinner, including Clark Family Orchards, Eat a Peach, Wynn Farm, Harvest Colorado, Trout Creek Farm, Anna Vail Cheese, Vail Meat Co. and more. Colorado wines will be featured throughout the series.

“After a successful first year of the dinner series, we’re looking to elevate the experience more by bringing in more Vail chefs and local vendors to each event to really showcase the amazing harvests and culinary talent in the Vail Valley,” said Angela Mueller, executive director of the Vail Farmers’ Market. “Additionally, we’re thrilled to welcome chef Larios and chef Masterson to kick off the first dinner and showcase our sister city’s fine cuisine while cooking alongside our local Vail chefs.”

Ascent Sotheby’s sponsors the series. Tickets for each dinner are $95 per person, plus a service charge, and can be bought at Dinners are held from 6 to 8 p.m. on West Meadow Drive in Vail Village.
