Super-sized City Market this Saturday

This Saturday, May 12 it won’t be your average Charlottesville City Market Day. As part of all those Tom Tom Festival events, the City Market will become an extravaganza of local food tastings, chef demonstrations and gardening information. What’s more, the inside of nearby south Street Brewery will become a veritable convention space of tastings from local restaurant and vendors, clinics, and interesting topic discussions related to the local, local food movement.

Here’s the days run down of events and activities, courtesy the Tom tom folks:

From 9am-12pm:
• Chef demos every 1/2 hour by our best local chefs including Brookville Restaurant, the Ivy Inn & the Whiskey Jar and more. Hosted inside South Street Brewery
• A kids corner with seed ball making, veggie prints, other veggie and gardening crafts on South 1st street as an extension of the farmers market.
