2nd Annual Iron Chef Competition

Celebrate a great summer at the LAST People’s Market of the season with our finale:

2nd ANNUAL IRON CHEF COMPETITION!
Wednesday, September 19th 4-7pm
Next to the Rec. Center

Joel Cox and Eric Wilson will be defending the Aspen Market‘s title against other local valley chefs. Each team will have two chefs working together to create a unique dish using three local secret ingredients. The chefs will not find out the secret ingredients until they start cooking. They will then be given 10 minutes to prepare a menu and one hour to create their dish. Each dish will be judged on taste, presentation and originality. The challengers for the event will be Couloir Restaurant‘s chefs Clark “Porky” Myers & Mike “Lenny” Britton, Fine Dining Group‘s chefs Roger Freedman & Paul O’Connor, and Wild Grass Restaurant‘s chefs Jay Lafferty & Hillary Porter.

The judges for the event will be Bob Arndt (Former owner of Harvest Café & Jackson Whole Grocer), Jed Restuccia (Cosmic Apple Gardens), Kendall Russell (Larks Meadow Farms) & Nona Yehia (EYE DesignsVertical Harvest). The People’s Market will be holding a silent auction for the public to bid on becoming a judge for the competition or to get a plate of food from a chef of their choice. The Jackson Hole People’s Market is an ongoing program of Slow Foods in the Tetons. The event is sponsored by Snake River Grill, Fine Dining Group, Cosmic Apple Gardens, Couloir Restaurant & Aspens Market.

Of course there will be our normal activities at the market too!  The Teton Wellness Institute is our non-profit of the week, and the Green River Foundation will be sponsoring our kid’s activities.  You can also look forward to:

 

Isaac Hayden Wednesday 4-7pm!

With only 3 Market’s left, the farmer’s have a bounty of fresh veggies this time of year.  Also, this week we have Isaac Hayden playing throughout the market for a FREE show from 4-7pm.

The Teton Mentor Project will be hosting a scavenger hunt for Kid’s Entertainment this week, and our non-profits of the week are The Cougar Fund and Conservation Alliance.

Lastly, a big thank you to Snake River Grill and Trio for sponsoring this week’s market.

What to get excited for!

Last Bike-In Movie w/ an Encore from Laff Staff

This is the last People’s Market in August and it’s harvest season!  The veggies that are going to be at the market are fresh and delicious.  Be sure to stock up with some local goodness to get you through the week!

This week JH Wildlife is our Non-Profit of the week, and the Green River Foundation will be providing Kid’s Entertainment!

Also, we have a few special treats this week.  First, The Flannel Attractions will bring their indie folk based string pickin’ music to your knees from 4-7pm.  After the Market, the Laff Staff is going to have an encore show until the last of the Bike-In Movie Series concludes with Willow!  Pica’s will be providing Taco’s and Margarita’s at the Bike-In.

Our sponsor of the week is Thai Me Up Brewery, which will be pouring suds all day and throughout the Bike-In.  And the Snake River Grill we cannot thank enough for being our most generous supporter!

People’s Market + Laff Staff + Bike-In

This may be our most amazing People’s Market yet!  Where do we start?!  Beginning at 4pm on Wednesday, August 15th you can head over the People’s Market for all of the fun and treats that you find every week.  From Cosmic Apples, Snowdrift Farms to Lark Meadow’s Cheeses, Snake River Grill Eskimo Bars and more.

While you’re collecting your weekly greens, you can listen to DJ VerT-OnE on the music brigade to bring a lively and fun atmosphere for folks of all ages!

You can hand your youngerns off to Full Circle Education while you do your shopping (or playing).  They are providing a market scavenger hung, a taste testing and worm box at their tent!

After that, the Laff Staff is performing from 7:30-8:30.  The Laff Staff is an interesting gaggle of crazies who forgo their senses of reality to bring improv comedy with no boundaries!

 

It’s not over there, because we are hosting the 2nd of 4 movies at the weekly Bike-In Movie Series!  This week, you can expect to see “The Great Outdoors“!  Thai Me Up is pouring a special brew just for the People’s Market, as well as PBR.  Pica’s will also be providing Taco’s and Margarita’s this week.  Popcorn?  We got that.  JH Pop is bringing their popper to help you get your fix.  Lastly, Hoff’s Bikesmith is donating a cruiser for each of the next 3 Bike-Ins.
