Chef in the market

Chef in the Market

Aromas and expert advice draw crowds to the market throughout the season for cooking demonstrations conducted by the area's best chefs.

Curious cooks watch chefs and cookbook authors from Portland and around the United States as they turn the market’s seasonal produce into simple, delectable dishes.

Chef demonstrations begin at 10 a.m. on the center stage at the PSU Saturday Market, each Saturday from June through September.
