Chef At The Market - RVAg

Chef At The Market

RVAg’s Chef at the Market program features a diverse array of local chefs using farm fresh products from the RVAg Marketplace in their recipes.  You can learn to make scrumptious unique meals inspired by cultures from around the world, and enjoy cooking and eating local seasonal food!

Like many other valuable services in our community, we have had to shift online to effectively serve our neighbors.  We are pleased to offer a Youtube channel to access a multitude of virtual demonstrations from our favorite local chefs in action, until they can return to our farmers markets.  Many recipes are surprisingly simple, and the videos are all about 10 minutes or so. The chefs are knowledgeable, entertaining, and inspiring! 

You can also access a comprehensive list of our Chef at the Market recipes at any time.  It feels good to shop local AND to cook like a chef! 

If you are a chef or food professional interested in doing a market demonstration, please send an email to us or give us a call @ 804-314-9141. 

Watch our chef demonstrations.
