Culinary delights and epicurean treats will be available for the second year at Taste of Farmersville.

The event, which will be held from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, May 23 at the Onion Shed, is hosted by the First United Methodist Church of Farmersville.

Tickets are $1 each and participants can get a small portion of delectable menu items for about two to three tickets.

Restaurants participating include Charlie’s Old Fashioned Burgers, Mr. Jim’s Pizza, Brookshire’s, Lovey’s Café, Pizza Street, The Brownie Cottage, Spivey Cakes, Happy Cucumber, Sugar Hill Country Kitchen, Dairy Queen, Sonic, Naturel View, Bobawok, Jalapeno’s and Savannah’s Meadow. There will also be face painting from the Princess Workshop.

Though fun will be had for foodies everywhere, the overall goal is to raise money for the church’s local mission programs.

“Last year we made over $3,000 for the local missions program,” event organizer Billie Goldstein said.

Projects that the church was able to complete locally with this money included making a 100-foot sidewalk for a wheelchair bound patient, fixing stairs and porch rails, making a new porch and giving supplies for a burned out house in Farmersville.

The church was also able to pick up tree limbs with the city after the ice storm, mow pastures and support the Angel tree project.

“We found our money went twice as far because contractors would ‘pay it forward,’” Goldstein said. “Jimmy Foley Construction donated concrete and crew for finish out work on the sidewalk and many others contributed time and materials. A big thank you to all who participated in these repairs.”

During the Taste of Farmersville, veterans and active duty personnel will also be honored since the event is being held on Memorial Day weekend.

“We will honor our veterans past and present for their service to our country with five free coupons, which will buy an entrée and a drink,” Goldstein said.

There will also be a board available for displaying pictures of veterans past and present, fallen heroes etc. or individuals may write the name on a ribbon.

The boards will be taken to the First United Methodist Church and every Memorial Day and Veterans Day they will be displayed in the sanctuary and prayed over by the congregation.
