Chef Demo at the Market this Saturday!

June 17th, 2016

During this tour, you will get the opportunity to purchase fresh produce from island growers as you accompany the chef as they make their purchases.  Afterwards, proceed to the Nantucket Culinary Center for a cooking demonstration and tasting.

What to Expect: The Culinary Center is partnering with Sustainable Nantucket’s NantucketGrown Campaign to give you the opportunity to meet talented Chefs working on this island who support, promote and encourage the consumption of locally sourced food. This campaign helps indicate to consumers that the food they are purchasing has been grown, processed, and distributed on Nantucket.

  • Wear comfortable shoes because you will be walking outside for a portion of this demonstration.
