Sunday, August 23, noon to 3 p.m., Rainbow Blossom Natural Food Market, Lexington Rd. in St. Matthews, in cooperation with Slow Food Bluegrass, will host its annual Farmers Market Celebration.

The regular weekly Sunday Farmers Market will be in full swing, with cooking demonstrations by Chef Gina Stipo, who will make Italian dishes the way Italians do, by using only fresh ingredients purchased from the local market. Stipo has recently moved to Louisville after more than a decade living in Italy, running Italian regional cuisine cooking classes and leading culinary tours. She has opened The Italian Table on Frankfort Ave.

The market celebration will offer a raffle with the drawing at the end of the event. The prize will be a $300 gift card to any of Rainbow Blossom’s Louisville or New Albany locations, along with a free bike courtesy of Parkside Bikes. Lottery tickets are being sold at any Rainbow Blossom or Parkside Bikes location now until the day of the event.
