We are so very exited to welcome once again, as the highlight of our market season, 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 o'clock.

We are also privileged to have the Southern Sugar Bakery girls, former Miss Kinston, Angie Daniels Tucker and Christin Kubasco will be with us with their holiday themed decorated cookies and a decorting demo beginning at 10 o'clock.
