Market Like a Chef @ Columbus Farmers' Market
Jul 28 @ 9:00 am – Nov 3 @ 9:15 am

 

Join GRO one Saturday a month from July – November at the Columbus Farmers Market for a free Market Like a Chef series. Learn how to shop for & cook the freshest produce and meat the market has to offer, eat seasonally, and get to know your food and wine producers.

Starting at 9 am, a featured local chef will lead 10 pre-registered guest* through the market to source the seasons freshest ingredients to create a simple, delicious dish. Beginning at 9:45 am, the chef will do a cooking demonstration showcasing local ingredients and products from the farmers market, while offering preparation techniques and tips. Free samples & recipe cards will be offered, and a quick Q & A with the chef will conclude the demonstration by 11 am.

To go along with the food tasting, a winemaker from a local Polk County winery will also be on-hand to offer samples of some of their hand-crafted wine varietals, selecting one to perfectly pair with the chef’s dish at market.

The Market Like a Chef series is free and available to everyone. All chef demonstrations take place in front of the veggie box truck, under the market managers’ white canopy at 9:45 am. *10 pre-registered guest will have the up-close & personal opportunity to shop with the chef. Registration (for the shopping portion only) is on a first-come-first-serve basis and a confirmation email will be sent.
