We offer market-oriented classes that focus on the best produce of the day. Chef Andre Pianucci will walk the market with you and help you pick a basketful of items to prepare the perfect farmer’s market meal. Then you’ll meet up again at In Good Taste where you’ll learn how to prepare a meal around the items you bought at the market.
Go to the Ecotrust Building on NW 10th and Johnson in Portland, July 20 & 21 to taste and buy some of the season’s best berries and also sample amazing products made with Oregon’s berry bounty.
There will be ice creams, pies, cobblers, jams, strawberry shortcake plus the unexpected taste treat like marionberry BBQ sauce, loganberry liqueur, cranberry chocolates, natural blueberry soda and much more.
This is a fun family event with children’s activities, live entertainment, a Portland Restaurant Berry Bramble and a chance to win a bike and eat your fill of Oregon berries.
Admission is free!
Happy 4th of July!

Calling all young chefs! Join us for a fun-filled Summer Cooking Camp. We’ll spend five days in the kitchen together creating delicious meals and treats. The camps include lunch and snacks along the way. We emphasize cleanliness, knife safety, and teamwork in the kitchen. Your young aspiring chef will finish camp with a better grasp of cooking fundamentals and the know-how to make their favorite dishes. Students will be given a packet of recipes each day.
There are camps for kids ages 7 through 12, and for teens ages 13 and over.
July brings the height of summer produce. The farmers’ markets will be full of fresh berries, cherries, corn, new potatoes, snap peas, sweet peas, watermelon, sweet onioins, herbs, salad greens, luscious red tomatoes, zucchini, green beans, summer squash, and stone fruits like peaches and nectarines. The preparations and combinations of these ingredients are endless, but for specific recipe ideas, see our website’s recipe section. Happy eating!
