Chef demo at Saturday’s Farmers Market is by 2 kids from a farming family
Danielle and Anthony have been Peachtree Road Farmers Market regulars since their family business, Garlic Clove Foods, began participating in the Market in the fall of 2009.
Growing up with access to the fresh fruits and vegetables at the Market has given them an unique perspective and an appreciation for good food.
“They both love to cook and are excited about sharing one of their favorite meals with you this weekend,” said PRFM Manager Lauren Carey. “You can find them helping out with various vendors at both markets (Saturday and Wednesday), and Anthony is also one of our special volunteers.”
Carey issued a special invitation to mothers and fathers: “Bring the kids to learn how easy it is to fix basil meatballs and watermelon salad.” That’s the menu for Saturday morning in the parking lot of The Cathedral of St. Philip, 2744 Peachtree Road. The market is open 8:30 a.m. to noon.
Take a Wednesday break for cooking
Every Wednesday from 4:30 pm to 8 pm, take a break from cooking with food and drink from familiar Peachtree Road Farmers Market vendors, new vendors, and a rotating popup schedule of Atlanta’s favorite chefs. Food is available to-go or to enjoy at on-site picnic tables at the same location.
And, plan ahead for the special “Veggie ThrowDown” on Wednesday, Aug. 24, from 5-8 p.m. that will feature four chefs cooking with 3 mystery ingredients from the market and Craft Breweries Creature Comforts & Terrapin Beer.
Tickets are $10 for a tasting of all four dishes and can be bought online or at the market. Proceeds go to support PRFM and Slow Food.
