The Nashville Farmers' Market hosts seasonal cooking demonstrations featuring community chefs, cooks, and farmers every Saturday at 11 a.m. During each 15-20-minute demo, attendees will meet instructors and participating farmers and vendors, learn how to utilize seasonal market ingredients to prepare delicious recipes, ask questions and — perhaps most importantly — enjoy samples. NFM Chef in Residence Laura Rodriguez is featured the second and fourth Saturdays monthly (unless otherwise noted).

Market Kitchen demos are free and open to the public — just show up, listen in and taste.
