We started our Chef at the Market program in 2015 with a micro-grant from Slow Food RVA and a matching grant from Virginia FAIRS. The grants helped us provide much needed funds to cover the cost of purchasing our Chef at the Market demo “kit”, as well as funds to cover a stipend for each chef, the cost of food, marketing and permit fees.
We are excited to partner with Performance Food Group for our Chef at the Market program in 2017! We have 13 chef’s demos planned for our 2017 market season.
We were pleased to have our Chef at the Market program presented by Whole Foods Market for the 2016 season. We presented 13 chef’s demos in 2016!
