Taste of Market is one of several special events organized by the Farmers Market each season to introduce customers to new foods, promote items that are available for sale at the market, and introduce customers to market vendors. The vendors will provide samples of in-season fresh fruits and vegetables as well as prepared foods, including apple cider donuts, egg rolls, kettle corn, a variety of baked goods, and even some special dishes they've prepared featuring some of their home-grown ingredients.
In addition, Farmers Market and Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department staff will work alongside employees from the University of Iowa Community Credit Union, which is co-sponsoring the event, to prep, grill, and serve samples of market meats and vegetables.
While patrons are enjoying the food, Kol Shira will perform live, offering an entertaining fusion of music and rhythms from around the world.
