In honor of RVA Food Revolution Day, we are pleased to have Tina Shiver, MS of Lighten Up provide us with a chef's demo! Tina will be mixing quinoa (pronounced "Qin-wah"), an ancient grain, with fresh veggies from the market to create a beautiful, healthy and easy-to-prepare dish. Tina is a Registered Dietician who holds a Masters of Science and Nutrition from James Madison University. Her practice uses a Functional Medicine approach, focusing on using nutrition to improve the overall health and quality of life for the whole person. She has been in private practice in Richmond, Virginia for 15 years, working with individuals to develop nutritional plans designed for their specific needs. ChiknEGG's Lisa Dearden has been working with Tina for years and has seen significant health changes due to the individual guidance and advice she has received using Tina's unique functional food approach. To find out more about Tina Shiver, visit her website or Facebook page. Don't forget to post your salad recipes in honor of National Salad Month on ChiknEGG's webpage - your picture and recipes may be included in our upcoming cookbook!
Come and hang out at the picnic tables with our Special Events Coordinator, Allison Schaller, and make a Thumbprint Chickens in honor of Dance Like a Chicken Day! We have a free kid's activity every week at the market, so kids - come back often and bring your friends!
MUSIC AT THE MARKET
|Listen Online NOW!|
Andrew is squeezing us in on Saturday before work and has to leave before the market ends, so our friends Robyne and Mary Burdgman of g2v (from last week's "rain" market) are coming back and will be "plugged in" this time so everyone can hear them perform. With hints of Neil Young, REM, XTC and traces of punk and metal flavoring their songs, g2v presents a catchy, eclectic sound that captivates the listener with every note. You can learn more about Andrew, listen to his music and contact him for bookings by visiting his website. To book g2g, email them! If you know of a band or solo artist who would like to play at the market, please email us or call us @ 804-314-9141.
