Holland Farmer's Market Chef Series, August 22

Learn from Chefs Scott Koncheck and James Bailey from Freedom Village in Holland how to entertain like a pro! They’ll feature some easy yet delightful summer entertaining ideas for any dinner party or summer BBQ. A mixed greens salad consisting of field greens, fresh basil, mixed nuts and fresh fruit will be tossed in a light vinaigrette and served in a carved melon baby carriage. To end a great evening of entertaining, they’ll show us how to make a peaches and cream pie made from a light whipped cream filling and fresh peaches from the Market! The Chef Series is held each Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Farmers Market from May 16 through September 12. The Market is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. from mid-May to mid-December rain or shine. The City of Holland’s Department of Leisure and Cultural Services hosts the Market at the Eighth Street Marketplace in Downtown Holland. Visit or contact Market Master Candy Todd at 616-355-1138 for more information. No pets of any kind are allowed at the Market. The 2009 Chef Series at the Farmers Market is sponsored by Visser Farms, a family farm in Zeeland that has been in business since 1902.
