Independence Day and Market Anniversary Celebration to Include Chef Cook-off, Live Music and More

Members of the Virginia Chef's Association will gather at the Williamsburg Farmers Market in Merchants Square on Saturday morning, July 3, to celebrate our nation’s independence and the market’s eighth anniversary.

Beginning with the opening bell at 8 a.m. and continuing all morning, Renny Parziale and his fellow chefs will man the Chef’s Tent for a nonstop culinary extravaganza to showcase the market's wide variety of fresh produce, meats, seafood, cheeses, herbs and more.

Parziale will direct participating chefs who will each have 20 minutes to create a recipe from a mystery basket of foods selected that morning from the market vendors. The chefs invite market shoppers to stop by the tent to watch, ask questions and taste the results.

Music will be performed by Orion from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. Complimentary anniversary cake will be served. Master Gardeners will be in attendance to answer flower gardening questions.
