A Star Shines in Hillsdale

Just heard that the Toyota Farm to Table Tour of the best farmers' markets in the country will be making a stop at the Hillsdale Farmers' Market on Sunday, May 1st. The Tour, showcasing and encouraging connections between chefs and farmers, will feature top local chefs using produce from premier local farmers to make samples that will be handed out at the market that day.

Market manager Eamon Molloy (left) said he's particularly honored to have the Tour come to the market this year. "We are very excited to have the Toyota Farm to Table tour visit Hillsdale at the beginning of our 10th season," said Molloy.

One fun feature will be a "passport" that you can get stamped at each tasting station…collect three stamps and you'll get a free potted herb for your garden. The lineup of participating chefs is yet to be announced, but look for a to-die-for list coming soon

Details: Toyota Farm to Table Tour at the Hillsdale Farmers' Market. Sun., May 1, 10 am-2 pm. Hillsdale Farmers' Market, at in the intersection of SW Capitol Hwy. and Sunset Blvd. in the parking lot of Wilson High School behind the Hillsdale Shopping Center.
