Alice Waters will be at Green City Market this Saturday July 26

Get an unprecedented chance to learn from Alice Waters, the woman largely credited for pioneering the sustainable and slow food movements in the US, as she takes you around Green City Market tomorrow, Saturday, July 26, to shop for local sustainable foods in preparation for a lunch (at the Palmer House) honoring Michelle Obama. Waters insisted that the food being served to luncheon attendees on Monday, July 28, come from the market. See firsthand how she plans for this event. The free shopping trip is from 8 to 9 a.m.. You can buy her book and have it signed by from 9 to 11 a.m. Proceeds from the book-signing will benefit Green City Market. The shopping trip and book-signing will happen rain or shine. No reservations are necessary. For more information about Alice, visit her website at: Chez Panisse.

More about the sold out benefit: cooking with Alice is the Palmer House executive chef Stephen Henry. On the menu, a Chicken Nicoise Salad with loads of market fresh vegetables as well as a baked stuffed Peach with Vanilla ice cream for dessert.
