“Kids Cook” Classes at 12SFM

The 12 South Farmers Market is pleased to announce the return of our Kids Cook classes!

Our Kids Cook classes focus on teaching children the foundation of healthy eating, about eating through the seasons, getting to know your farmer, and gaining hands-on experience preparing locally grown ingredients available at the market.

Classes will be taught by Kristen Edmonson, a RD-to-be living in Nashville, TN! She is finishing up her dietetic internship this May and will be eligible to take the RD exam in June. She recently graduated from Lipscomb University with her Masters in Exercise and Nutrition Science. She is passionate about health and wellness at all stages of life! She loves cooking and enjoying healthy foods throughout the seasons. She was the Kids Cook intern last year and is now ready to lead the kids, along with a new intern!

Get ready for exciting cooking classes taught by local chefs & culinary experts!

Each class will include a guided market tour, small group instruction, sample tastings, and recipes to take home. These classes are offered to children ages 8-12 and held on select Tuesdays throughout the season from  5:15-6:15pm. Pre-registration is required.
