I wanted to let you know about some fun cooking classes coming up at the King Portland Farmers Market. The popular Kids Cook at the Market program lets junior chefs ages seven to eleven cultivate their culinary skills and experience a cornucopia of farm-fresh foods. Kids learn about the seasonality of food, meet local farmers and gain first-hand experience preparing ingredients purchased fresh at the market
Classes include a market shopping trip, hands-on instruction and recipes to take home, so students can share what they learn with family and friends. The schedule:
July 1 – Vegetable Fritters
August 5 – Summer Greek Salad
September 2 – Gazpachos
Two class times will be offered each month, at 10 a.m. and 12 p.m., and take place at the King Farmers Market at NE 7th & Wygant. Pre-registration is strongly recommended and can be completed at kidscookpfm.eventbrite.com. Each class costs $10 per child, $5 for SNAP recipients, and classes do typically sell out.
