Chefs Shop, Chop, Vie For Iron Chef Title At Friday Night Peachtree Road Farmers Market

Atlanta’s largest producer-only market will be open this Friday night from 4-8 p.m. for a special Iron Chef competition. The fresh-from-the-field action will be going down between Chefs Justin Balmes and Patric Bell, along with four other popular Atlanta chefs. The chefs will each be given $45 to buy ingredients. Before the clock strikes 6 p.m. they must turn those ingredients into farm-fresh plates for 100 lucky ticket holders. The ticket holders will be the judges by sampling the plates and choosing a winner. Tickets are $5 and go on sale at 4 p.m.

Not only will there be hot competition among some of the hottest chef’s in Atlanta, the usual 70-plus vendors selling fruits, veggies and handmade goodies will be there, plus live bluegrass by The Farmland Trio and dinner options from a fleet of food trucks.

If you show up Saturday morning you’ll miss out on all the fun! Plus the vender’s will be sleeping in after a big Friday night in the city. Repeat, no market on Saturday. So come spend your Friday happy hour at the Peachtree Road Farmer’s Market and you too can sleep in on Saturday morning.
