Chef Ed Pickens on July 20

Farm to Plate Aug.3 to Sept. 28

Brought to the community by the Hazelgrove Farm Bureau Community Council, Richland Community Development Group, Shelby Foundation, Richland County Creating Healthy Communities, Shelby FFA and Richland Farm Bureau, this event series at the Shelby Farmers’ Market will feature local chefs preparing foods while sharing cooking tips and menu ideas to help maximize the use of seasonal, local foods. The program is provided at no cost to attendees.

A host of partners, supporters and volunteers have joined together to provide this exciting program to link the growers of our local foods with local chefs and with us, the consumer. Cooking demonstrations, featuring items that can be found at the Farmer’s Market or through local sources, will occur on six occasions this summer. Taste testing, recipes and starter kits will be available. There will be healthy activities for the kids too. This is a great opportunity to learn about and support our local food economy, and to be newly inspired to eat healthy and to eat fresh.
