Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer food tastings? If so, how does it work?
Market Street Catering offers menu tastings by appointment only and must be set up at least 2 weeks in advance. Dates are subject to staff and restaurant availability. The charge for a tasting is $25 and includes 4 entrées and 4 sides. Additional items can be added on and will be priced according to the prices listed on our catering menu.
Can you make something that isn’t listed on your menu?
Yes! We are more than happy to customize menu options for you. If there is something you want that is not listed on the menu, then please just ask!
I have a gluten-free uncle, a vegan aunt, and a cousin who is allergic to strawberries, dairy, and nuts. Can you make special meals for them?
Yes we can. We are happy to make as many special meals needed for your guests with dietary restrictions.
Do you offer kids meals?
Yes, kids’ meals start at $9. 99 each. Most kids’ meals come with chicken tender, roasted potatoes, and fresh fruit. However, we are happy to come up with a custom kids’ meal if need be!
What type of event is most budget conscious?
We can do a wedding in any price range! We have done several weddings where the bride and groom offered heavy appetizers as opposed to a big dinner. We recommended selecting 8-10 appetizers per person, which works great as a meal replacement!That being said, we can also do some very affordable plated dinners.
Are there any perks to ordering catering AND cake or desserts with you?
Yes there are! If you order catering and cake or desserts through us, then you receive a discount on your wedding cake or desserts, free cake delivery and set up, and no cake cutting fee.
We can cut cake that is provided by a different vendor. However, there is a $1. 00 per person cake cutting fee.
How do I book you as our caterer?
We just need a signed copy of the proposal and a 10% deposit to book your wedding! Once you are booked, you can still change you menu and your guest count. Booking simply reserves your wedding date with us. We do not need the menu to be finalized until 1 month before the wedding. The guest count needs to be in 5 days before the wedding. Then, final payment is due 48 hours before the wedding.
How far in advance do I need to book for my wedding?
There is really no magic number here. We recommend booking at least 5 months before your wedding to be safe. That being said, we have plenty of people who book over 1 year before their wedding!
Do you provide servers? If so, what is the cost?
We do provide servers for your wedding. Typically, we have 1 server for every 20-25 guests at your well. There is an 18% service fee on the cost of your food. This amount covers the cost of having the servers at your wedding for set up, service, and cleanup of all catering equipment and food at the event.
