A lot about a farmers market is old-school. Based on most people’s eating habits the mere idea of buying raw ingredients and cooking from scratch is all too rare. To many, cooking dinner is opening a jar of sauce that someone else made and serving it over pasta someone else made. We don’t expect to, nor are we trying to, convince everyone to make everything completely from scratch but we hope to at least make people conscious of the difference. This is the spirit of planning winter food demos with a bit of a party also.

Not a demo, but you’ll want to save the date! This annual fundraiser supports the market and will feature Northeast Ohio maple syrup, french toast from free range eggs, apple cider and coffee.On Saturdays without cooking events I will be doing a beginner knife skills class at 10:30am and a seasoning class at 11:00am. Bring your knife because it’s always best to learn with the tool you have. We can check the sharpness. If you don’t have one that’s fine too.
