Free “Hidden Star Orchards” Seasonal Cooking Demo & Tasting | Jack London Square

Free Seasonal Cooking Demo & Tasting | Jack London Square

With more than 40 vendors, the Jack London Square Farmers Market offers local produce, food craft products, and breakfast and lunch options.

The Jack London Square Farmers Market is operated by CUESA at Oakland’s Jack London Square on Sundays from 9 am to 2 pm, year round, rain or shine. Founded in 1989, the Jack London Square Farmers Market has deep roots in Oakland, providing a vibrant waterfront marketplace of local farms, food crafters, and restaurants for Bay Area families.

Starting Sunday, April 23, 2017, the new farmers market hours will be 10 am to 3 pm.

On most Sunday, free cooking demos take place at the CUESA Classroom (adjacent to the info booth at Broadway & Water Street) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.

Join them at CUESA’s Jack London Square Farmers Market in Oakland for a cooking demo with Johann Smit of Hidden Star Orchards featuring the seasonal bounty of the Jack London Square Farmers Market.

Once a dairy farm, the Smit family land was converted to a fruit orchard in 1985. Having studied Agribusiness at Cal Poly State University, Johann assisted his parents with the transition from dairy to fruit, and from conventional farming practices to organic practices.

Johann has worked on growing the business, first adding juices 26 years ago, and then an additional array of value-added products in the last 10 years. Now what isn’t sold as fresh fruit is juiced, sauced, dried, or fermented and sold as apple chips, apple butter, applesauce, preserves, fruit extract, juice, or hard cider. Any remaining leftovers are transported to a pig farm as food for animals.
