Organizing a chef demonstration at your market can increase attendance, create a buzz within your community, and give a noticeable boost to your farmers sales. Cooking demonstrations offer your market goers the opportunity to interact with and sample ingredients from local farmers that they may not otherwise have been able to experience.
This toolkit was written & designed by FINI West Sound Farmers Market Project Coordinator, Jess Sappington, to further market resources and expand upon program offerings at area farmers markets. Inside the toolkit you will find helpful information for the market manager as well as the Chefs taking part in your demonstration. These events are meant to be a partnership between your market, local chefs, and your farmers. When coordinated properly chef demos can benefit all involved!
