How to Shop at the Farmers' Market (Tour & Cooking Class)

If you have ever felt overwhelmed at the farmers' market by all the choices and unfamiliar produce and products, this is the class for you.

Let Chef-Instructor Erica Wides guide you through the farm stalls of NYC's Union Square Greenmarket and help demystify what is available. Learn what is most important to fill your shopping bags with this season and why (one secret: fresh eggs...vastly superior to the supermarket variety and she'll explain the difference).

With only a loose menu in mind, the chef will encourage the students to select the ingredients they are unfamiliar with and want to learn how to cook. After an hour of shopping and tasting, we'll head back to HCNY's cooking school at 158 Grand Street, Studio 206 to cook a huge seasonal feast to enjoy together.
