It has been quite the week over at FreshFarm Markets. Their Dupont Circle Farmers Market was named one of the best farmers markets for travelers by CNN (congratulations!!), highlighting a consumer’s ability to connect with the people who grow their food. And on Thursday, one of their other standout markets, the FreshFarm Market by the White House, will host a stop on the Toyota Farm to Table Tour to kick off National Farmers Market Week (August 1 through August 7th). The event will feature a line up of DC area chefs, displaying their skills at various demos throughout the market. These demos will of course use the fresh produce, meats and dairy available at the market and will include free samples for market shoppers. Even better, shoppers can get culinary inspiration for the many seasonal items the market has to offer. Chefs will include David Varley of Bourbon Steak DC, Nora Pouilon of Restaurant Nora, Kyle Bailey of Birch and Barley and Ryan Wheeler of Restaurant Eve – just to name a few!
And as if chef demos weren’t enough, Four Seasons Nursery will be giving away potted culinary herbs (for those who want to flex their green thumb) and there are chances to win prizes, including a culinary trip to Santa Barbara. The fun starts at 3 pm on July 29th (that’s tomorrow) and lasts until 7 pm. So take a work break or head over after work for a celebration of the vibrant farmers market community in DC!
The FreshFarm Market by the White House is located at 810 Vermont Avenue, NW. For a map of the market location, click here.Print This Recipe
