Richland County Farm to Plate Cooking Demos Set

The 2018 schedule of cooking demonstrations for the Richland County Farm to Plate event series at the Shelby Farmers’ Market is available. Featured local chefs will prepare 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. Cooking demonstrations, featuring items that can be found at the Farmer’s Market or through local sources, will occur at 10 a.m. on five Saturdays this summer:

June 16
June 23
July 21
July 28
Aug. 18

The program is brought to the community by Hazelgrove Farm Bureau Community Council and Richland County Farm Bureau. 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 consumers.

Taste testing, recipes and market money will be available. The Junior Chef division will be back this year, and there are new ideas that may get a gourmet chef into your kitchen!

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.
