Farm to Market Report: Weekend of August 24


Coppell Farmers Market: Market organizer, Amanda Vanhoozier writes in to say, “The CFM Market to Kitchen series highlights local chefs demonstrating how to prepare meals using locally produced, seasonal ingredients from the Coppell Farmers Market’s farmers and producers. It has become a market favorite to be able to enjoy more time at the market, learn from a chef, and take home recipes and tips.

This Saturday, August 24th – Chef Hugh Stewart of Chamberlain’s Fish Market Grill will be under the big tent at 10 a.m.  He will be making a Tuscan panzanella salad with fresh cut herbs and farm fresh cheese. Grab a cup of coffee or some ice water and join chef Hugh for this free demo with tasting sample.

Winter squashes like spaghetti, butternut, acorn, pumpkin are being to rear their fall heads at the market.  We love eating with the seasons and noticing the flavor changes in our artisan food producers, too!”
