What: The Westport Farmers’ Market (WFM) wants you to fall in love with your kitchen again. While creating a thriving local hub for seasonal food, WFM has arranged for 19 of the top area chefs, mixologists, and butchers to do delicious, live recipe demonstrations featuring fresh, local foods found each week at the market.
Learn how to use locally grown and produced, seasonal ingredients found at the market to prepare fresh, easy meals for your family. The season kicked off with the Staples High School Culinary Arts team, then Sugar & Olives “ramped” up the demo with their pickled ramp recipe and tutorial, followed by a lesson in how to properly harvest ramps.
Attend these free events and receive recipe cards to prepare the featured dish at home using the same market ingredients. Every chef demo will feature a local chef or food professional who supports the local food culture and the WFM.
When: Each Thursday, June 19th-November 6th between 10:15 and 11:00 am
Where: 50 Imperial Ave. Westport, CT
Visit the Westport Farmer's Market every Thursday from 10:00 am-2:00 pm
