During the month of July 2010, faculty and students from the Academy of Culinary Arts are appearing at the Friday farmers’ market in Punxsutawney.

In an effort to support local growers and to increase community awareness of healthy cooking and eating choices, chef instructors Martha Rupert, Lynn Pike, and Anthony Battaglia and a team of Culinary Arts students are sharing recipes and cooking tips at the farmers’ market. Demonstrations include how to prepare and serve fresh produce and will feature different local products and recipes at each market.

The Punxsutawney Farmers’ Market is held on South Findley Street in the downtown area every Friday from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. and will continue through the last Friday of September. The farmers’ market is sponsored by PRIDE, Punxsutawney’s downtown revitalization organization.
