Back in April, Baltimore experienced the first ever EmporiYUM, a pop up marketplace featuring restaurants, local artisan food purveyors and celebrity chefs - it was a sellout crowd. EmporiYUM is back, with numerous purveyors of fine foods for your day-to-day table and your holiday entertaining on Saturday, November 15 from 11 am to 4 pm and Sunday, November 16th from 11 am to 3 pm in Washington DC adjacent to Union Market.
As their website states, EmporiYUM is a way to introduce people with a passion for food to a curated selection of artisans both local and from around the country. There will be food and beverages to sample as well as purchase from the many featured vendors. Who will be there? The organizers have done an amazing job of giving you an outstanding cross section of food purveyors like Milk – momofuku milk bar, Woodberry Kitchen, Luke’s Lobster, Mouth Party, Pho Wheels, Kinderhook, Neopol Smokery, Bread Furst, Chef Geoff’s, Kapnos, Cure, Ryleigh’s Oyster, Shake Shack and many more.
Expect to see Bravo’s Top Chef alumni: Bryan Voltaggio, Mike Isabella and Paul Qui meandering amongst you.
