Look What’s Cookin’ at the SOAR Farmers Market!

Throughout the SOAR Farmers Market season, we showcase chef demonstrations from notable Streeterville restaurants. At each demonstration, chefs set up their kitchen inside the SOAR Information Booth and demonstrate how they make one of their special dishes. Once the dish is ready, samples are given out for all to enjoy!

After each demonstration we post the recipes of what was made at the demonstration for you to try at home. Remember to buy your fresh ingredients at the SOAR Farmers Market!
