Give Thanks for Fresh Food

This week at PRFM…
Countdown to turkey day is on! Stop by the Market for all of your fixings, from collards to sausage, sweet potatoes to green beans, kale to ice cream (yup, we went there). And save the date for PRFM’s indoor holiday artist market on November 26—bring the whole family for good food and great gifts! P.S. if you can’t make it on 11/26, stop by for another artist market on December 17th, the last day of the 2011 season.

Chef Demo with Ryan Smith
Empire State South
10:00 a.m. on 11/19

Chef Demos are sponsored by
Whole Foods Market

Check out the demo tent this Saturday for Thanksgiving inspiration from one of our city’s finest chefs. As Executive Chef of Empire State South, Ryan Smith knows a couple of things about fresh, seasonal ingredients mixed with a little bit of tradition and a whole lot of creativity (the perfect combination for a stellar Thanksgiving, in our book). Since graduating from The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, Ryan’s honed his skills at some of the best restaurants in Atlanta, including Bacchanalia, Canoe, Holeman & Finch, and Restaurant Eugene. Now at Empire State South, Ryan continues to refine his craft, developing with Chef/Partner Hugh Acheson dishes that reflect the history and traditions of the Southeast. Respect for the past coupled with an eye towards the future—sounds just about right for some (delicious) holiday inspiration.

Coming soon!

Holiday Artist Market: November 26th & December 17th

PRFM moves indoors for two special dates of holiday shopping! Give local this year, with choices from fine foods like bacon, hot chocolate, and artisanal jams to crafts from 35 local artists (think handmade baskets, fabric art, glass, jewelry, wood creations, cutting boards, bird houses, candles, blooming bulbs, plants, glass beads and more!). Just can’t decide? PRFM has gift cards, too. So, bring the family for some good food and fun shopping this holiday. We’ll see you inside the Cathedral of St. Philip!
