We are so very exited to welcome once again, Chef Vivian Howard, as the highlight of our market season. As Kinston's own, PBS “A Chef's Life” star and co owner of the Chef and the Farmer restaurant, the Boiler Room, Wilmington's Benny's Big Time and the forthcoming Handy and Hot in Kinston.
Needless to say, Vivian is a very busy person, but still takes time to honor our market, and its vendors by giving a cooking demo and sampling to their customers on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Her sister, Leraine Tolston, also a busy lady, and owner of Queen Street Deli, adds her talent to do the same. Who knows what deliciousness these two will create and serve as samples? Demo begins about 11:15.
Tammy Kelly will serve samples of pumpkin butter, smeared generously on biscuits made by the Biscuit Lady, Miss Lillie!
Kelly Tyndall from Lenoir County Cooperative Extension, will bring samples and info on the Mediterranean Diet.
We are also privileged to have the Southern Sugar Bakery girls, former Miss Kinston, Angie Daniels Tucker and Christin Kubasko will be with us with their holiday themed decorated cookies and a decorating demo beginning at 10:00. They will bring with them for sale decorated turkey cookies and decorated pumpkin pie spice cookies. They will also have for sale sea salt chocolate chip cookies and also the pumpkin white chocolate cookies. Find them at www.southernsugarbakery.com.
Chloe Albritton will have her delicious French baguettes which will be available for a donation to fund a mission trip to Costa Rico this summer.
Ruth Anderson and her KHS and LCC Early College students will prepare baked goodies, including pupusas (made with corn flour dough and stuffed with cheese) which can be had for a donation to their spring trip to Eastern Europe. Keep in mind that this group will also take pre orders for your holiday poinsettias, Christmas cacti and cyclomen. These will be delivered by the end of November. Please support these projects.
Donna McGee will also being taking orders for her beautiful hand made wreaths. These wreaths are made from freshly cut greens from the NC mountains. You can add your own enhancements to make your wreath special ... one of a kind just for you! Your wreath will be delivered back to the market on Saturday, December 2 between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. This is Donna's eighth trip to our market!
And if that's not enough excitement for one day ... we will also host local artists and craftsmen. They will display and have for sale their creations. Keep in mind, these will make great Christmas gifts!
Please join us for this very special day!
Our market will be open on Tuesday and Wednesday before Thanksgiving!
