Benefit event for Goshen Market Foundation returns after 2-year hiatus

Some of Edwardsville’s favorite restaurants are teaming up with vendors at Goshen Market to celebrate the return of Burgers & Brews, an evening of artisan sliders, innovative sides and local beer under the stars to benefit the Goshen Market Foundation.

After a two-year hiatus due to COVID, the event will once again take place on Saturday, June 25 from 6-10 p.m. in downtown Edwardsville.

Tickets for the event are $50 (presale) and $55 at the door. Guests will have their choice of three hearty servings of locally sourced sliders and market vegetable sides prepared by Cleveland Heath, Peel Wood Fired Pizza, Northside Dairy Haven, Global Brew and Sugarfire BBQ.

Clean Eatz will prepare a delicious vegetarian option. The dessert will be a team effort between 222 Artisan Bakery and Friedel Family Farms.

Two complimentary drinks (pints of Recess and/or Peel Brewing Co. beer, wine and/or Social Grace Vodka cocktails) are included in the ticket price. Wine, beer, sodas, cocktails and additional sliders will be available for purchase. Chef’s Shoppe will provide each ticket holder with an individual bag of one of their gourmet popcorns to enjoy before or after their evening of live music, garden games and old-fashioned downtown Edwardsville charm.

Tickets are available online at

Those interested can also obtain tickets by calling 618-550-2816 or visiting the information tent at the Land of Goshen Community Market on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon in downtown Edwardsville.

All proceeds support the Goshen Market Foundation’s efforts to help maintain and grow its core initiatives. These include the Beet Box, a mobile market that helps provide fresh local produce to those in need, the Goshen Market and Farm to School initiatives, which support school gardens throughout Madison County.

The Goshen Market Foundation’s mission is to provide greater access to healthy food, encourage the growth of local agriculture, and educate children and the community about sustainable farming practices and nutrition.
