Sometimes shopping at farmers markets can be overwhelming, and you end up packing 10 reusable bags full of fresh fruits and veggies but don't know where to start once you get to the kitchen.
Learn just how to turn all that produce into perfection at the Old Town Scottsdale Farmers' Market Farm Sessions, where Scottsdale chefs guide buyers throughout the market and then demonstrate how to cook the ingredients.
This Saturday, November 7, kicks off the event. The cost is $40, and the session is limited to 10 participants. Cost includes a recipe card and all ingredients to prepare the meal for two, an organic tote bag, a resource guide and the lesson. Chef James Porter, of Petite Maison, will be your guide this week.

The Old Town Farmers Market is every Saturday through May from 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at Brown Ave. and First St.. More than 40 vendors are on hand every week with baked goods, beef, produce, coffee and more. For more info, log on to www.arizonafarmersmarkets.com.
