Prep for Turkey Day the PRFM way

Remember, PRFM is open 9 a.m. to noon now through 12/19!

This week at PRFM...
It's the weekend before Thanksgiving, so don't forget all of your side dish necessities at the Market! We'll have sweet potatoes, winter squash, radishes, turnips, carrots, ginger, mushrooms, peppers, kale, and lots more local produce. Enjoy grass-fed beef and pork for a turkey alternative, as well as farm fresh eggs, local raw honey, jam, and pickled and roasted goodies for your Thanksgiving feast!

Chef Demo - Saturday 10 am
Nick Melvin | Venkman's
Executive Chef and Partner Nick Melvin takes a creative approach to classic comfort cuisine at Venkman's in the Old Fourth Ward. Nick's experience includes Atlanta faves Rosebud, Parish, and Empire State South. Venkman's uses the best quality ingredients and serves wild and sustainable seafood, humanely raised poultry, grass-fed free range meats, and local produce whenever possible. Nick applies his fine dining background to family recipes at Venkman's, where you can enjoy amazing food and drinks with eclectic live music, to boot. Nick's Doux South Pickles are always finding their way into the dishes too. 

SNAP Sign-up Assistance
The Market partners with Wholesome Wave Georgia to double the value of every SNAP/EBT dollar spent at the market, providing access to good food while supporting sustainable farmers and contributing to the local food economy.

This Saturday, Wholesome Wave will be at the market all morning to answer questions and 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.

Save the date - November 28
