Summer living


This week at PRFM...
We're rain or shine (see us inside Child Hall if there's rain!)

Chef Demo
with Graham House | 4th & Swift
10:00 a.m. on 6/27
Chef Demos are sponsored by
Piedmont Hospital
Wanderlust doesn't begin to describe chef Graham House's culinary journey. He started out in Asheville and Atlanta, then decided to give Italy a try, working at a 140-year old kitchen in a small town outside of Lake Como. After a year, he headed back to the states and served as the opening sous chef under chefs Jay Swift and Chris Hall at 4th & Swift, where he continued to develop his love for local and seasonal. Next he took that passion across the country to work with California veg, cooking at renowned restaurants in Napa and San Francisco with a focus on using not just the whole animal, but also the whole vegetable. Lucky for us, his travels have brought him back to Atlanta and 4th & Swift, where he's been putting his spin on the menu since May. Join him under the demo tent this Saturday for a fresh look at what to do with your summer market haul!

Tips from Piedmont Better Living...
Here, from our partners at Piedmont Hospital, is a quick article on just how great raw veggies are for you. Bonus: they taste wonderful, too (especially PRFM's farm-fresh heirloom varieties).

Of note...
Peachtree Road Farmers Market is CLOSED on JULY 4th due to the Peachtree Road Race. Good luck to everyone participating!

Beat the heat with PRFM + ice cream


This week at PRFM...

Stroll the market with a nice iced beverage in hand (coffee or freshly made soda, perhaps?), learn something at The Lexicon of Sustainability tent, and bring the kids for story time at the Your Happy Nest tent (hear Waiting for Wings at 9:00 a.m. and make butterfly-themed art, celebrating beneficial bugs and pollinators). Then grab a seat for the 10:00 a.m. chef demo with Suzanne Vizethann, a Food Network CHOPPED champion and chef/owner of Buttermilk Kitchen. Stick around and reward yourself for shopping local by indulging in seasonally inspired ice cream courtesy of nearly 30 chefs participating in the Slow Food Atlanta Ice Cream Social (details below).

Farm fresh events at PRFM


This week at PRFM...

Chef Demo
with Angus Brown of Lusca
10:00 a.m. on 6/6
Chef Demos are sponsored by
Piedmont Hospital
After making an indelible mark on the industry with Octopus Bar, a celebrated post-shift spot among our city's chefs, Angus Brown's newest concept was one of the most highly anticipated openings last year. And rightly so. Lusca has since been named as a semifinalist for the James Beard Foundation's Best New Restaurant category, included in GQ's list of "America's 25 Outstanding Restaurants," and listed in bon appetit's "America's 50 Best New Restaurants." Angus was also named one of Cooking Light's "Trailblazing Chefs" and was nominated for Food & Wine's "People's Best New Chef." He's trained in French, Italian, and Asian cuisine, and has researched and cooked his way through Japan and Vietnam. Lucky for us, he's settled in his hometown of Atlanta, where he's committed to using local ingredients and serves on the chef advisory board of Atlanta's Community Farmers Markets. You won't want to miss this Saturday's demo with one of our city's most creative chefs!
