Down Home Va filming at Williamsburg Farmers Market

On Tuesday, August 17, 2010 from 10am to 2pm  the Williamsburg Farmers Market will be the site of the filming of Chef John Maxwell as he prepares local meals for “Down Home Virginia.”  Although the public is invited to watch the demonstrations, samples will not be served.

Williamsburg Farmers MarketChef Maxwell brings delicious recipes to the table using Virginia farm products and seafood. Maxwell is a current director of the Food Service Management Program at the Culinary Institute of Virginia.

The market will include vendors with local produce, fruit, peanuts, cut flowers, Greek baked goods and grass-fed beef as well as the works of two artists.  Polly Nunn of Williamsburg will bring her paintings and clay sculptures and Maggie Stultz of Charlottesville will have colorful, whimsical functional ceramics.  All art will be for sale.

“Down Home Virginia,” Virginia Farm Bureau’s monthly television news magazine, strives “…to remind everyone that agriculture remains a viable and important segment of the state’s economy,” said senior video producer Norm Hyde. “Agriculture affects the lives of every Virginian—not just those of farmers.”

The goals of the television program and the Williamsburg Farmers Market are to create awareness for agriculture and to offer helpful farm-related tips on subjects such as gardening, cooking and weather. Libbey Oliver, manager of the Williamsburg Farmers Market, commented “We can all appreciate the hard work of farmers after a summer of experiencing extreme temperatures and little rain.” Customers of the market agreed by voting the market and its vendors the 2009 America Favorite Farmers Market in the American Farmland Trust’s contest in the mid-size category.

The Tuesday markets will end on August 17 while the Saturday markets will continue each week until October 30.
