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.
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:
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!
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.
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.
