During Market Walk, our Chef in the Market booth will feature chefs Sarah Chan, of Calypso Kitchen and Cinnamon Berg, of Cosmos Bistro, demonstrating recipes highlighting the different varieties of salad greens. Recipes and samples will be provided (11am, 11:30am, 12pm). Look for the blue canopy in front of the pavilion.
