Free Seasonal Cooking Demo & Tasting | Ferry Plaza Farmers Market

This waterfront market, run by the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA), has over 100 food, fruit, and vegetable vendors on Saturdays and the entire Bay as its beautiful backdrop.

The Ferry Plaza Farmers Market operates year-round from 8 am to 2 pm.

On most Saturdays, free cooking demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.

Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. This demo will highlight a producer-chef relationship forged and sustained at the farmers market, featuring Hodo Soy.

Leslie Peng is a Northern California native who grew up in Davis against the beautiful backdrop of farmlands. She moved to the Bay Area to attend university and fell in love with the wide diversity of new cuisines she tasted in Berkeley. She began working as a prep cook, determined to become a part of the fascinating world of restaurants, and gradually progressed through the ranks in the kitchen. Eventually she found she could dovetail her passion for sweets and background in science in the field of pastry. She attended Western Culinary Academy in Portland, Oregon to study pastry, and after her graduation she returned to the Bay Area to work at The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco, where she deepened her love and technique for French pastry. Under the tutelage of Christopher Lee and Samin Nosrat in Berkeley, she adopted the mantras that still shape her cooking today—the elevation of beautiful locally sourced, sustainable produce, and honoring the ancient tradition of cooking with love, care, and respect.
