Yep, in just one week (on Wednesday, June 1), the Wallingford Farmers Market kicks off the 2011 season in their new location at the Meridian Playground field (corner of Meridian Avenue North and North 50th Street). The Wallingford Farmers Market hours for the public will be from 3:30 pm to 7:00 pm, with a special 30 minute time reserved for chefs from 3:00 – 3:30 pm to pick up restaurant orders and stock up on ingredients just in time for the weekend.
Come see Chef Dustin Ronspies from Art of the Table give a cooking demonstration starting at 4pm (and wish AOTT a happy third anniversary!)
Just a quick heads-up about getting to the new Meridian Playground location: Farmers Market organizers have asked people not to access the Market via Sunnyside Avenue North and not to park at the Good Shepherd Center parking lots. There is parking along Meridian Avenue, which is also accessible by the 16. 26, 44 and 82 bus routes.
Here’s the 2011 season lineup of chefs and cooking demonstrations:
