To Market, to Market: Where the chefs are

At some area farmers markets, shoppers can watch local chefs demonstrate dishes, then buy the ingredients from vendors on-site to try the recipes at home. Two markets have released their demo schedules for the next few months.

The Falls Church Farmers Market is ramping up the Market Chef series it began last year, doubling the number of demos this season for the Saturday morning event. All demos run from 9 to 11 a.m.; the general market hours are 8 a.m. to noon in the parking lot at City Hall, 300 Park Ave., Falls Church.
