Here's your chance to taste test all of your favorite North Market vendors.

The 19th annual Apron Gala, to be held on Saturday, May 16, from 7 to 11 p.m., will feature bites from all of the merchants at the market, as well as beer and wine. Sample a light Little Eater salad, move on to one (or two or three) bites of Hot Chicken Takeover and finish with a sweet sample of Pistacia Vera's macarons.

The Ark Band, a local reggae group, and DJ Patrick will provide live entertainment, and guests can enjoy a live auction, too.

Don your favorite apron for a chance to win the North Market's Aprons on Parade contest. (Last year's winners are pictured.)

Tickets are $75 for young professionals (21-35 years old) and $100 for individuals. The Apron Gala is the market's largest fundraiser benefitting the North Market Development Authority, a501 (c) (3) organization. Proceeds go right back into supporting the daily operations of the market.
