On Sunday, Sept. 17, it’s the Gourmet Marketplace, with samplings and product information offered by some of Cape May’s premier restaurants and other sponsors. The event is from noon to 4PM at the Cape May Winery, where guests can take a vineyard tour, sample the best chowders this harbor town has to offer, vote for their favorite in the Peoples Choice Chowder Contest, and cheer on their favorite chefs in the Chefs’ Cook-Off. Admission is $25.

On Tuesday, Sept. 19, a five-course Beer-Tasting Dinner at Aleathea’s Restaurant features America’s beer authority Gary Monterosso, who will be on hand to discuss the different pairings of beer and food. Admission is $65.
