MILL CITY COOKS
Learn how to cook your #WeeklyMarketMeal in our free, chef-led cooking demo, Mill City Cooks, offered every Saturday in the train shed patio from 10:30 to 11 a.m. This Saturday, market chef Jenny Breen will be making a seasonal dish using market ingredients. Plus, our kids’ tables at the demo always feature coloring sheets and other engaging activities, giving adults some free time to relax with a cup of coffee while picking up tips and easy seasonal recipes from our market chefs.
