Fairfax County has launched a new cooking series at farmers markets throughout Fairfax County in an effort to help shoppers learn how to create healthy meals from their market purchases.

The “Chef at Market” series, which launched earlier this month, features volunteer chefs from Virginia Cooperative Extension Master Food Volunteers. The chefs will prepare meals on site through live cooking demonstrations. At the end of the demonstration, residents can pick up free recipe cards to take home.

The recipes, according to a news release from the Fairfax County Park Authority, will mostly use fewer than five ingredients and will not feature heavy seasoning. 

Annandale residents can visit the chefs at the market when they stop by the Wakefield farmers market on Wednesday, Aug. 14 from 2:30-3:30 p.m. and the Annandale farmers market on Thursday, Aug. 22 between 10:30-11:30 a.m.

The Wakefield farmers market is usually on Wednesdays from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Wakefield Park, located at 8100 Braddock Rd. The Annandale farmers market is on Thursdays in the parking lot of Mason District Park, located at 6621 Columbia Pike, from 8 a.m. to noon.
