Boalsburg Market Preview; Workshops This Weekend

Boalsburg Farmers Market – July 10

(From Jim Eisenstein)

Our vendors will have all of their usual fine products this week – open 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 10 at the PA Military Museum.

But what is especially notable is that the Boalsburg Market will sponsor its second 2012 “Learning Kitchen”  featuring two prominent local chefs preparing dishes using ingredients from market vendors.

“The Learning Kitchen is a great way for customers to discover new ways to use the many fresh, local products available at the market, and to see two excellent local chefs in action.  This will be a community event, and the public is encouraged to bring friends and family,”  notes Tony Sapia, co-manager of the Boalsburg Farmers Market and owner of Gemelli’s Bakery. Nearly all of the ingredients both chefs will use will come from  Boalsburg Farmers Market vendors, the same products available to anyone shopping at the market.

  • Sc’eric, the Master Cocktailian from the Fuji Jade Garden Restaurant, will  demonstrate making “Cocktails from the Garden,” utilizing fresh garden ingredients to create refreshing cocktails and wonderful sangria.
  • Nate Bruny, the executive sous chef de cuisine for Zola New World Bistro,  will present “Farm to Fork: Fast and Flavorful,” demonstrating how to incorporate less common vegetables into everyday meals and how to prepare more familiar vegetables in new ways.  He will show expert techniques to cook for maximum flavor.

The Learning Kitchen event will run from 2:00 to 4:00 PM. Seats will be available on a first come first serve basis.   There is no charge, and free convenient parking is available at the Pennsylvania Military Museum, which is located on Business Route 322 (South Atherton) in Boalsburg, PA.
