Come visit us this weekend, June 18, 2011

This weekend Chef Ivy will be at the market cooking with produce from some of our very own NCFM vendors. Please come and listen as she explains how to make what she's cooking and why it's so good for you.

Afterward, visit one of our vendors, like New Roots or Lee Farms, to take home what you need to make the recipe yourself.

See you on Saturday.
