Chef Demos are on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic

Delicious Inspiration

Chef Demos are on hold because of the COVID- 19 pandemic.

We look forward to a time when we can bring back Chef Demos every Saturday at 10 a.m. (from April through November) so Napa Farmers Market guests may enjoy a live cooking demonstration by local chefs and food experts using market-fresh ingredients.

Chefs needed!

Are you a local professional or amateur chef interested in showing off your skills? When Chef Demos are back, you can sign up here!
