On Wednesday Sept. 16th, four local Chefs will participate in our 3rd annual Iron Chef Market Cook Off Challenge. They will each be given identical baskets of fresh market products, and 1.5 hours to make up a delicious meal using all of the items in the basket. 3 local judges will rate the meals based on creative use of basket goods, presentation and of course taste. Downtown Culinary Tour’s Donald Fraser hosts the popular annual event. Market customers will gain creative ideas on how to utilize market goods and are able to watch some of our areas finest Chefs at work. This year our defending champion Geoff Kirkland of Lantern Restaurant will face off against Lisa Dixon of Black Honey, Steve E of Elmhirst’s Resort and Erik Hoflick from Dr. J’s BBQ and Brews.  Winner gets bragging rights and will return the following season to defend their title.  All ingredients will be purchased from market vendors thanks to financial support from FoodLand Ontario.

Our wonderful judges this year will be Dean Pappas (Town Ward Councillor), Pete Dalliday & Catherine Hanrahan (local celebrities and market lovers), and Deputy Warden Joe Taylor. 

Each Wednesday market-goers will find a festive and bustling market full of their favourite vendors selling seasonal produce, meats, cheese, fresh flowers, baked goods, art, plants to grow, coffee and lunches to go. As a producers only market, shoppers can be sure they are buying direct from the farmers, growers, bakers & Chefs themselves, and learn about diverse local produce as it comes into season. We are open every Wednesday 8:30-2pm until October 28th
