Fresh Fridays

Fresh Fridays is an opportunity for Dorchester residents to meet with neighbors in an outdoor community space. The event brings together people of all ages to eat, dance, and socialize while celebrating food and exchanging ideas,” said project manager Darnell Adams of the Dorchester Community Food Co-op, the organizations that also runs the Dot Winter Farmers Market.

To kick off the season on Aug. 7, Fresh Fridays will welcome local women-owned catering TrinCity, Aesha Raw and Sister Act 3. TrinCity Cuisine, based at 340 Washington St., is an informal eatery that’s winning raves for its Trinidad-style dishes such as roti, doubles & meat & veggie curries. Both Aesha Raw and Sister Act 3 are known for their healthy and scrumptious desserts.

Fresh Fridays has a $10 suggested donation for adults, but it’s actually pay what you can whether it’s more or less than suggested; children attend free. The donation covers a plate of food and the evening’s worth of entertainment and socializing. For a full schedule visit FF has a rain location for Aug 7, 21 and 28th at the First Parish Church.
