Hosts, Sponsors, & Partners
The Cleaver Co. & The Green Table
The Cleaver Co. is a full-service event planning and catering company dedicated to supporting a healthy, regional food and farm economy and providing sumptuous food, attentive service and exceptional event planning. Founded 35 years ago by Mary Cleaver, one of the country’s foremost authorities on sustainable food and local sourcing, The Cleaver Co. – along with its restaurant The Green Table in Chelsea Market – is widely recognized for utilizing local farms and purveyors in order to obtain the best-quality product, and for supporting small to mid-size farms and family farmers. Whether at a gala for 500 or a dinner for two at The Green Table, Mary’s long standing conviction – that the best foods are grown, tended and harvested within a day’s drive of your table – is always clear.
Foragers brings clean and ethical food of the highest quality to our customers by shortening the distance between farm and fork. We believe that it is worth going the extra mile to find foods that are healthy for human, animal, and land. We do so by bringing in many local products on our own distribution truck that delivers the best of the Hudson Valley weekly. We also grow our own vegetables and raise laying hens for eggs at our market garden in upstate New York. Since we opened in 2005, we have found many incredible people and products! We are happy to share our discoveries with you in our grocer, wine shop and restaurant.
Greenmarket Co. is a wholesale distribution service offered by GrowNYC, designed to bring the freshest, highest-quality farm products to New York City’s wholesale buyers: we make locally produced foods available to more New Yorkers by delivering regionally produced foods to grocery stores, bodegas, restaurants, and other retail outlets throughout the city.
Parish Hall operates from the perspective that restaurants have an important role to play in our city, in the food system, in our culture. They’re fundamental parts of our social life, they compose a significant part of our economy, and they play a crucial role in our interaction with our environment. Parish Hall’s aim is to improve the soil in which we farm, improve the lives of the people we work with, make the experience of eating out transformative, and broaden access to good food for everyone.
Runner and Stone
Runner & Stone opened December 2012 as a neighborhood bakery, restaurant and bar. We bake all of our bread and pastries in house, including naturally leavened breads and viennoisseries, using local whole grain flours, dairy and fruit. Our lunch consists of salads, soups and sandwiches for dine-in or take away and feature house-prepared meats and fish on our signature breads. Dinner focuses on seasonal vegetables and meats and includes a full range of house-made fresh pastas. Runner & Stone also has a full bar, serving beer, wine and liquor.
Sueños has grown to be one of New York’s favorite hideaways, offering a variety of fresh Mexican dishes, authentic Mexican décor, and stellar margaritas. At Sueños, chiles are celebrated with their own $50 prix-fixe tasting menu. Sueños reflects Sue Torres’ love and respect of all things Mexican.
