MCC Culinary Students at Village Pointe Farmers Market

Summer 2009 | Archives

Students enrolled in MCC´s Institute for the Culinary Arts will be applying their craft and deepening their education through a unique, hands-on experience at the Village Pointe Farmers Market. Students and their instructor spend Saturdays at the market meeting vendors, learning about locally raised and produced food items and filling their grocery bags. After purchasing market items, the students return to the kitchens at MCC and process the raw ingredients into such delicacies as pickles, jam, compound butter, infused oils, chicken stock, dehydrated herbs and more. The newly created foods are used for special dinners throughout the summer and at MCC´s Sage Student Bistro.

MCC will also feature live cooking demonstrations throughout the summer and fall at the Farmers Market. The dates for these shows are June 27, July 18, Aug. 15, Sept. 12 and Oct. 3.

The Village Pointe Farmers Market takes place every Saturday, May 2 through Oct. 3, 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Parking for the event is available in the southeast parking lot at Village Pointe shopping center.
