Cooking demo at Farmers Market

Regular shoppers at the Sunday DUMBO Farmers Market probably know Carrie Luckner-Zimmerman as the helpful market manager wearing a yellow t-shirt emblazoned with Community Markets carrot logo. But on August 16, from 12-2 p.m., Luckner-Zimmerman will don on another hat — a chef hat, that is.

Besides managing the farmers market, Luckner-Zimmerman is a chef and instructor at Sur La Table in Manhasset, NY and a true devotee to cooking with the seasons. She will be demonstrating how to make a delicious and elegant beet crostini using all local ingredients.

Luckner-Zimmerman will be using local goat cheese from Coach Hill Farm, a vendor at Community Market’s Park Slope Farmers Market, Bread from Orwasher’s Bakery, a DUMBO Farmers Market vendor and beets from Glebocki and Phillip’s Farms, also at the DUMBO Farmers Market.

The DUMBO Farmers Market is held every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. until November 22 at the entrance to Brooklyn Bridge Park on Main Street.
