ANN ARBOR – What better way to learn how to cook than with local chefs using local ingredients?

Now through October, on the third Wednesday of each month, the Ann Arbor Farmers Market will be featuring cooking demos focused on fresh, seasonal produce sold by farmers at the market.

In partnership with local food marketing agency Taste the Local Difference and edible WOW magazine, the demonstrations will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with tastings.
