Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. This demo will highlight an artisan producer who sells at our market.

A former pastry chef at Nopalito, Michelle Pusateri started making granola when she became fed up with blends that were stale, processed, and loaded with sugar. Her goal was to create a healthier granola using fresh ingredients sourced from local and sustainable farms, and pure maple syrup as the only sweetener. Michelle produces each batch of granola by hand in a gluten-free kitchen, and she sells them through local retailers and farmers markets.

For nuts and fresh and dried fruit, Nana Joes sources from local farmers, including Ferry Plaza vendors like Bernard Ranches, Kashiwase Farms, Bella Viva Orchards, and Blossom Bluff Orchards. She uses certified gluten-free oats, and certified organic grade-B maple syrup sourced from an artisan producer on the East Coast.

All demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
