The Peachtree Road Farmers Market will shake things up a bit this week with a one-time-only Friday night event.

This evening market edition will feature over 70 produce and handmade treat vendors and include live bluegrass music from The Farmland Trio. Look for food trucks to be on hand to provide dinner.

A big draw for the Friday night market is the Iron Chef-style competition that will replace the traditional chef’s demonstration. Six chefs will have two hours and $45 to shop from market vendors and prepare plates for 100 event ticket holders ($5). Participating chefs include:

  • Jared Lee Pyles of HD1
  • David Gross of Market
  • Patric Bell, formerly of West Egg Cafe
  • Justin Balmes, former “Next Food Network Star” competitor
  • Suzanne Vizethann of The Hungry Peach
  • Meghan Lewis, the Whole Foods Health Starts Here Prepared Foods Advocate

This Friday’s (June 1) market will run from 4-8 p.m. Tickets for the Iron Chef competition tasting will be available beginning at 4 p.m. This event will replace the Saturday morning market for this week only.

I know it is linked, but would’t it be a good idea to put the location of the Market in the story?
