Beat the heat with PRFM + ice cream

This week at PRFM...

Stroll the market with a nice iced beverage in hand (coffee or freshly made soda, perhaps?), learn something at The Lexicon of Sustainability tent, and bring the kids for story time at the Your Happy Nest tent (hear Waiting for Wings at 9:00 a.m. and make butterfly-themed art, celebrating beneficial bugs and pollinators). Then grab a seat for the 10:00 a.m. chef demo with Suzanne Vizethann, a Food Network CHOPPED champion and chef/owner of Buttermilk Kitchen. Stick around and reward yourself for shopping local by indulging in seasonally inspired ice cream courtesy of nearly 30 chefs participating in the Slow Food Atlanta Ice Cream Social (details below).
