Event serves tastes of town

The sixth annual Taste of Marshalltown will serve up samples from local restaurants and caterers Feb. 26.

The free event held from 5-7 p.m. at the Marshall Town Center, is open to any employee of a Marshalltown Area Chamber of Commerce business.

“The whole event is about keeping business local and supporting local small businesses,” said Lynn Olberding, executive director of the Marshalltown Area Chamber of Commerce. “It’s one of our most popular events.”

So far 11 businesses will be participating.

“The businesses may sample something they are looking to add to their menu if they really want to promote it,” Olberding said. “It’s a great opportunity for people to sample some different menu items from restaurants they haven’t tried before or caterers they haven’t tried before.”

If a food-related Marshalltown Area Chamber of Commerce business would like to participate in the event, contact Olberding at 641-753-6645.
