Saturday marked the first chef demonstration at the Del Ray Farmers’ Market this year.
Stephen Scott from La Strada prepared salad and homemade pasta free of charge for market shoppers. His recipes showcased fresh, local ingredients available at the market.
Market master Pat Miller said the plan is to host a different chef demonstration on the first Saturday of each month through October.
Chef Will Artley staged a demonstration at the final Four Mile Run Farmers and Artisans Market of 2011. The Four Mile Run Market opened its 2012 season on Sunday, as did the West End Farmers’ Market in Ben Brenman Park.
Along with Scott’s demonstration, Saturday’s Del Ray Farmers’ Market included a performance from the Irish Breakfast Band and a visit by former Del Ray resident U.S. Rep. Jim Moran (D-8th).
