To Market, To Market

Looking for a way to get out and enjoy the waning days of summer heat on this first day of fall? This afternoon at the Penn Quarter FreshFarm Market, the executive chef of Teaism, Arpad Lengyel, will be cooking apple pies like his grandmother used to make. The cooking demonstration starts at 5 p.m.

The small, producer-only market regularly invites big name chefs to swing by for cooking demos. Besides the apple pie, which will be available for sampling, you'll find peaches, plums, beets, lettuces, tomatillas, eggplant, peppers, squash, fresh herbs, cheeses, yogurt, honey, breads and pasture-raised buffalo and pork.

The market, which runs from 3 to 7 p.m., is located on Eighth St. NW between D and E streets.
