Join us for the final Madison Meet and Eat of the year at Meadowood Thursday September 20th from 5:00-7:00 p.m. This unique neighborhood event brings a collective of local Madison food cart vendors to a neighborhood and encourages families to enjoy a fun night out. Attendees have the opportunity to purchase and enjoy delicious and diverse menu items while enjoying the company of friends and neighbors. Madison Meet and Eat is a City of Madison planned event.
The plan for Madison Meet & Eat is to become an annual, summer event that rotates around to different locations in Madison and plans are under way for 2013. This will allow other neighborhoods to experience healthy, local affordable food and help foster a greater sense of community.
