Tis the Season for Chef Demonstrations

At the Seattle Farmers Market Association, we celebrate summer the best way we know how: through food. We are seeking local chefs and culinary creators to lead demonstrations highlighting local and fresh products at the Wallingford and Madrona Markets this summer. Contact Desi at desisfma@gmail.com to schedule a demo today!

What to Expect

 Cooking demonstrations will be held from May to October in the Seattle Farmers Market Association Seasonal Markets in Wallingford (Wednesday 3-7) and Madrona (Fridays 3-7). Dates are confirmed on a first come, first serve basis.

 Because we publicize your appearance and shoppers look forward to your demo, we require at least 72 hours notice of cancellation.

 Your demo should be based on what is in season and available at the market that day. The goal is for market-goers to be able to purchase ingredients for your recipe that day. ALL MAIN INGREDIENTS MUST BE FROM THE MARKET.

On the day of the demo, please arrive by 3:30 to set-up, shop, and prep. Demonstrations will be set-up near the main information booth unless specified otherwise. Demos will begin at 5:00.

 It is up to the discretion of the chef how many samples they would like to prepare and pass out.
