Join us as we celebrate fall with the inaugural Tosa Farmers Market Dinner in the Street! We teamed up with our Tosa friends Le Rêve, Ristorante Bartolotta and the Tosa Farmers Market to create a unique and memorable dinner under the lights in the middle of State Street in the heart of the Wauwatosa village.

Following the market festivities of Tosa Harvest Fest, State street we will be closed off for a 4-course dinner with fresh produce from the Tosa Farmers Market by Executive Chef Thomas Hauck of Lowlands Group, Chef de Cuisine Sarah Edith Obear of Le Rêve and Executive Chef Juan Urbieta of Ristorante Bartolotta.

You won’t want to miss this one-of-a-kind dining experience. Tickets are only available on Eventbrite and are expected to sell out quickly! And plan on coming to the village early that day to enjoy the Farmer’s Market in its normal location until noon and the Tosa Village Fall Harvest Festival on State Street—with live music and more—until 6pm, when dinner begins!
