One of the biggest events of the year for the North Market is their annual Coffee Roast. Last year’s event was a huge success, with attendance nearly doubling the previous year’s numbers. This year plans to be even bigger, with the event moved outside to their plaza area, and the addition of two new local coffee roasters. The event will feature a total of twelve roasters brewing java to sample and many will have representatives in attendance to answer questions and talk coffee. Pair that with all of the incredible merchants and food that is available at the North Market, and we’ve got ourselves a brunch!! There will also be a home-brewing competition taking place where, starting April 1st, contestants can pick up their info and instructions at the North Market offices. Samples will be judged and a winner will be announced at the Brunch. There will also be several demonstrations on Espresso drinks and home-brewing by local coffee experts.
Advance tickets are $14, or $20 at the door. If you’d like to purchase advance tickets for the event (which includes a souvenir coffee mug), you can do so here. Hurry, advance tickets are limited.
I’ve got mine. I’d highly recommend you do the same.
