Art at the Market and the Visiting Chef Series

March was full of fun events at the Hillcrest Farmers Market! On March 21st we held our first exciting Art at the Market event. The Hillcrest Farmers Market information booth was adorned with various pieces from Greg Maier’s beautiful pastel art collection. Throughout the day, Greg developed a piece that exhibited the day’s hot weather on his canvas. He used warm colors to produce artwork inspired by the Hillcrest Farmers Market. Check out the picture to see Greg hard at work last Sunday. Don’t miss our next Art at the Market event on April 11th with local artist Jessica!

Yesterday, the market held another successful Visiting Chef Series event with market vendor, Chef Rashida McElvene from Edgy Edibles ( After passing out samples of her tasty roasted garlic butter on baguette slices, Rashida chose two audience members to help her with her demonstration. As the audience took notes, she gave a brief lesson on knife techniques while providing market patrons with other helpful cooking tips. Using cucumber, mint, lemons, scallions, crème fresh, and chicken broth, she made a simple and delicious cool cucumber and mint soup topped with a candied lemon peel; a perfect treat for the day’s hot weather!

Save the Dates:

Come join us this Sunday for our Easter Arts and Crafts. Kids will be able to decorate their own Easter bunny masks – while supplies last!
