An Iron Chef style competition between Anthony Lamas from Seviche and Bobby Benjamin from LaCoop will begin at 3pm with judging at 4pm. The chefs will prepare a meal using fresh, local ingredients purchased from the day’s market. The winning meal will be chosen based on taste, originality, healthiness, and the “can I make this at home?” factor.
This event will mark the official launch of the 2014 Farmers Market held each Sunday at Rainbow Blossom St. Matthews which hosts local farmers and food artisans who bring the best in just-picked produce, pastured meats, fresh eggs, baked goods, preserves and ready to eat items. Local artisans also exhibit handmade jewelry, ceramics and more. In addition to the regular weekly vendors, the Farmer’s Market Celebration will include guest vendors from food, artisans, education, and live music.
Sunday, June 1, noon - 4pm
