Event description

Description

Enroll your junior chefs ­— ages 7 to 11 — in Kids Cook at the Market classes, where they’ll cultivate culinary skills and experience a cornucopia of farm-fresh foods!

At Kids Cook classes, kids learn about the seasonality of food, meet local farmers, and prepare ingredients purchased fresh at the market. Classes include shopping the market for ingredients, hands-on instruction, a shared meal, and recipes to take home so students can share what they learn with family and friends.

NEW this year! Classes will be held at both 10am and Noon at King Farmers Market on Sunday.

June 3 - Spring Veggie Omelets

July 1 - Vegetable Fritters

August 5 - Summer Greek Salad
