Event Overview

Without a doubt, visiting the Parker Farmers’ Market is one of my favorite ways to spend a Sunday morning. Not only do you get to see, smell, touch and purchase locally grown fruits and vegetables, but you get to people-watch! And of course, you get to prepare a wholesome meal with all your farmers market finds.

Preparing a farmers market based feast is a lesson in flexible cooking. Maybe the recipe calls for green peppers, but those aren't quite in season yet. Can you leave them out? Would substituting zucchini work instead? Darn, the bread vendor is sold out of your favorite potato bread! Switch things up by preparing an organic salad with your sandwich ingredients. The dairy truck broke down on the way to market. Try a vegetable-based broth instead of that creamy soup.

Join me for this discovery tour and uncover the chef’s best-kept secrets to a delicious and healthy meal right from the garden. We will meet at the Parker Farmer's Market for tasting and shopping then head back to my kitchen to cook what we purchase. Here's what we're cooking:

- Corn Fritters with Tomato and Feta Salad
- Grilled Peach, Mixed Greens and Goat Cheese Salad
- Market Fritatta
- Rustic Fruit Tart

Note: Recipes subject to change based on availability!

    Had a fabulous time at the market! Great experience, learned a lot about other ingredients to use if what the recipe calls for isn't fresh or available. Food we made was delicious, and totally doable at home. Great class for home chefs, will definitely sign nup for other classes from DeDee!
