OkraFest

  • Riondo's Ristorante

Our 3rd annual fundraiser is a gourmet affair, with foods sourced from local farms & food artisans and served in a beautiful historic setting, all to the tune of live music, prizes and good company.

 Join us as we revel in our coastal region's year-long growing season and enjoy a good time--all in the name of supporting local foods & expanding its benefits to all within our Galveston community.

Your ticket allows you to savor the flavors of our region with a small plates menu crafted by Chef Rico Caminos of Riondo's Ristorante. The upstairs ballroom above Riondo's is a hidden gem, perfect for celebrating the triumphs of the year alongside friends and the taste of summer.  A silent auction and raffle offer up local art, delicious eats, hotel stays, fun weekend get-aways, one-of-a-kind experiences and much, much more.  Every item up for grabs is donated by local businesses and entrepreneurs whose work we admire and share our vision for a vibrant Galveston. 

After the fun & success of last year, we're thrilled & humbled to host this summer event once more. The funds raised will support us as we continue our work towards bettering this community through connecting folks to better food, to better health and to one another.

Tickets can be purchased for the earlybird special of $40.00 at both our Thursday & Sunday GOFM markets, at Riondo's or online here. Tickets bought at the door are $45.00.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Casey at gofarmersmarket@gmail.com.
