Chef Demonstrations

A Green City Market favorite! Top Chicago area chefs demonstrate recipes using seasonal and sustainable ingredients from Market vendors, providing inspiration and guidance for how to cook with market ingredients in their own homes.

Chef demonstrations take place every market during the outdoor and indoor seasons at 10:30am. Chef demos are free and seating/standing room is first come, first served. During the indoor market, chef demonstrations take place inside the Nature's Lunchbox at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.

Details on chef demonstration information is sent out in our weekly e-newsletter -- click here to subscribe.
