Nutrition Education

We take pride in our Eastern Market Community Kitchen in Shed 5. It is the home to an ever-changing group of small food business owners through the Detroit Kitchen Connect program and is crucial towards our mission of being an inclusive regional food hub.

The other way we activate this kitchen is through our cooking classes and demonstrations. You can find full information below about kids and adult cooking classes throughout this summer, upcoming demonstrations during our Saturday Markets, and recipes from past demonstrations held in our space!

Thanks to Target for their support of our nutrition education programs and to our media partners 105.1 The Bounce & EdibleWow.
