Mill City Cooks

What do I do with Swiss chard? How long do I cook wild rice?

Our chefs have the answers!

As part of our dedication to healthy and local food education, the Mill City Farmers Market offers 20 to 30 minute professional cooking classes every Saturday at 10:30AM. These classes, located in the train shed patio area, feature seasonal ingredients prepared by our market chefs, plus recipes to take home and a delicious sample for everyone in the audience!

In addition to cooking classes, Mill City Cooks often features book signings, celebrity guest chefs, and cooking and baking contests. Join the fun every Saturday May through October–rain or shine!

Volunteer in the Mill City Cooks kitchen!

Work in our kitchen to support our weekly healthy and seasonal cooking classes. Chop and prepare vegetables, assist our market chefs plate dishes, and hand out recipes and samples to the crowd. Novices and expert cooks welcome! The Kitchen Demo shift is from 9:30AM to 12:30PM every Saturday of our outdoor season. Sign up to be a Kitchen Volunteer here.
