The Farmers Market is the perfect place for chefs to get an overview of what is in season each week, engage with local food growers, sample artisanal products, and purchase fresh ingredients for their restaurants. We love seeing and hearing about how farmers market ingredients are prepared on local menus.
In partnership with EatDenver, each Saturday at the Union Station Market local chefs demo unique recipes with in-season ingredients. They arrive at 9am to shop the market and connect with local growers, selecting the freshest ingredients available. At 10am they are situated in the center of the market, cooking their dish, sharing best practices and engaging with market-shoppers. The demo wraps up at 11am.
We encourage chefs to sign up for our weekly newsletter, which is sent out every Wednesday morning. This email includes a list of what is in season each week, special events at the market, vendor profiles, and recipes from local restaurants.
