Embark on your family-friendly edible adventure when you visit Mt. Pleasant Farmers’ Market this summer and pick up your own free Cook the Kit. Each Cook the Kit includes a featured farm-fresh recipe, pantry ingredients, and a voucher to redeem your farm-fresh produce ingredients while at the farmers market. Transform your kitchen into a harvest test kitchen that inspires your culinary talents while creating a specially selected recipe that's sure to satisfy your palates. Bonus bites - each fun kit comes with a delicious reward at the end.

Cook the Kit will be available once per month for pick-up at the Mt. Pleasant Farmers’ Market on select Thursdays at Island Park and select Saturdays at Town Center at Broadway and Main Streets. While we may have some extra kits available the day of, we strongly encourage everyone to reserve their Cook the Kit in advance.
