of Avalon Catering
10:00 a.m. on 9/12
Chef demos are sponsored by
Piedmont Hospital
Chef Jenn Robbins was born and raised in Atlanta where she grew up active and hungry for tasty food! Her culinary interests led her to “the other South” when she enrolled in the Texas Culinary Academy in Austin. Her first professional kitchen work? With none other than Texas legend Kent Rathbun at Jasper’s Austin (y’all might be familiar with our own legendary Rathbun brother, Kevin). Speaking of Kevin…when Jenn moved back home to Atlanta, she joined the kitchen of Kevin Rathbun Steak, where she worked until deciding to follow her foodie passion to the world of catering—with Avalon Catering under Chef Cathy Conway, Jenn develops personalized menus and experiences. And congrats are in order, since her last demo she's also joined the Les Dames d' Escoffier Atlanta Chapter! Jenn’s considerable talents combined with her love of using high quality local ingredients make her one chef to watch—so come on over this Saturday and do just that.

Healthy Eating Tips - Salsa!
Not only does fresh salsa taste amazing, it's great for you and packed with superfood nutrients. Health benefits of fresh salsa:
  • Tomatoes: Rich in the cancer-fighting antioxidant lycopene.
  • Bell peppers: Full of vitamins A and C, folic acid, fiber and potassium
  • Red onion: Packed with anti-inflammatory flavonoids like quercetin, which gives these onions their color.
  • Hot peppers: Some studies show eating spicy foods can boost metabolism.
  • Fresh garlic: Antiviral, antibiotic and heart-healthy.
  • Cilantro: Adds tons of flavor for about 1 calorie per 1/4 cup and contains vitamins A, C and K.
Lauren Carey, Market Manager, shares this easy recipe for fresh salsa.

Chef Demo - 8/15 at 10:00 a.m.
Jeremiah Weston of
Wrecking Bar Brewpub
Chef demos are sponsored by
Piedmont Hospital
Growing up in rural East Tennessee, Chef Jeremiah Weston was exposed to a wide range of local produce. Both his grandfathers grew tremendous gardens, which first gave him the exposure of what vegetables are supposed to taste like. Jeremiah was always by his grandmothers' sides in the kitchen helping out with culinary tasks. This background is what truly sparked his interest in cooking.

In 2003 Jeremiah attended Johnson and Wales University in Charleston and graduated with an associate's degree in Culinary Arts. After earning his bachelor's degree in Food Service Management from Johnson and Wales in 2011, he returned to Tennessee and worked for the prestigious Inn at Blackberry Farm and soon fell in love with the whole idea of farming. He raised a 3-acre garden and sold his produce to local restaurants around the Knoxville area. He next moved to Atlanta to join the Wrecking Bar Brewpub under mentor and Chef Terry Koval and was named Chef de Cuisine there in 2014. The gastropub serves up meals with local, seasonal ingredients accented by house-brewed craft beer.

Market Volunteer Project
Atlanta resident Ned Ellis is a frequent shopper at PRFM, so when he needed a project to become an Eagle Scout, the Market came foremost to his mind. Seeking a project that would both benefit the community and be used well into the future, he proposed building new picnic tables for the enjoyment of marketgoers now and in the future.

After at least 80 hours of work from conception and planning the tables to building them, Ned's tables were completed last Saturday. The two new tables and refurbished existing tables are a welcome addition to the Market landscape! Many thanks to Ned and his troop for volunteering their time and talents to enrich the Market experience! Come by on Saturday and enjoy one of our many ready-to-eat snacks at a shady picnic table!

Wholesome Wave Georgia at PRFM
The Market partners with Wholesome Wave Georgia to double the value of every SNAP/EBT dollar spent at the market. This means that $1 of SNAP benefits is actually worth $2 at PRFM. The benefits doubling program provides access to good food while supporting sustainable farmers and contributing to the local food economy.

This Saturday, Wholesome Wave Georgia will be at the market all morning to answer questions and to assist those who qualify for SNAP benefits to sign up. If you know anyone who could use food assistance, invite them to come to the Market. Check the Wholesome Wave Georgia website for the info required to sign up.

PRFM for all


This week at PRFM...

Our Buy 7 Contest continues, so don't forget to stop by the info tent and enter to win! While you're picking out those fruits and veggies, enjoy the sounds of Irish music, bring the kids to Your Happy Nest (story time at 9:00 a.m. and farm animal crafts all morning), check out the Chef Demo with The National's Peter Dale at 10:00 a.m., and grab a bite from our Chef Pop-Up with Nick Leahy (benefiting the PRFM Meals on Wheels program). Saturday made.
