Celebrity Chef Demonstrations & Cooking Lessons

A Green City Market favorite! Top Chicago area chefs demonstrate recipes using seasonal and sustainable ingredients from market vendors, providing inspiration and guidance for how to cook with market ingredients in their own homes.

Chef Demonstrations take place at all of our markets at 10:30am. See our calendar for a full list of scheduled demos, market activities, and more. Chef Demos are free and seating/standing room is first come, first served. During the Indoor Market, Chef Demonstrations take place inside the Nature's Lunchbox room at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.

Details on Chef Demos are included in our weekly e-newsletter – click here to subscribe.

The Chef Demonstration program is generously supported by the Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts.
