Join us in The KITCHEN for a series of cooking classes for kids ages 6-12 to learn about local food and the journey it makes from the farm to the table. In these hands-on classes, kids explore and taste the seasonal bounty of the region through the local vendors of the Boston Public Market.
These classes are held in collaboration with vendors in the Boston Public Market and are taught by market vendor cooks or farmers who tell first-hand stories about where the ingredients are sourced and how they are grown/made.
Classes will be held on the following Saturday mornings from 10:00 am to 11:00 am:
Parents: You are welcome to stay and watch the activity during the class. If you would like to leave your kids in the KITCHEN without you, please do not leave the Boston Public Market, and please plan to pick them up promptly after the 1-hour class has concluded.
Classes are deliberately small (max 18 kids) so please register in advance to guarantee your spot.
IF YOUR CHILD HAS A FOOD ALLERGY, please email email@example.com
and provide details of what foods to avoid.
