We will delve into the art of baking pies.  Kids will learn how easy pastries can be!  Starting with the most important, the foundation, we'll learn to make delicate pie crusts. We will start with our entree, a market-fresh tomato pie (great for a hot summer day) and then move to dessert.  What could be better for a Georgia summer than peach pie?  Students will leave understanding how simple and delicious pie-baking can be! Thursday's class goes shopping at the market and sometimes ends at 6:30.

Is there an age limit?

The lower age limit for our cooking class is seven years old. However, you know your kid better than we do! We will be handling knives, kitchen equipment like food processors, and using the oven and stove. Please judge for yourself whether your child is ready for these skills. Some seven-year-olds are ready. Some nine-year-olds are not.

Can I attend with my child?

Parents are welcome to tag along but space in the kitchen is limited so parents won't be in the room with the kids. There will be at least three adults supervising and assisting the kids if they need help.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Feel free to contact the Rockmart Farmers Market with any questions. Email: | Phone: (404) 436-1818

Due to limited space, class size is limited to 8 people.
