Chef In The Market


Aromas and expert advice draw crowds to the market for cooking demonstrations conducted by the best chefs and cookbook authors in Portland and beyond. Join vendor/food lover/host Dirk Marshall of Marshall’s Haute Sauce as he emcees the best cooking demonstration this side of Iron Chef. Market-goers can watch these pros turn the market’s seasonal produce into simple, delectable dishes (and taste them) at 10:00 am on the center stage at the Portland State University Market, every Saturday June through October.

If you are a chef or food professional interested in doing a market demo, please send us an email.
