Julia Child would have been 106-years-old on August 15. For the fifth year in a row, our market is throwing her a birthday party of cool culinary proportions! 

Returning this year is Lynne Rossetto Kasper, host of American Public Media's The Splendid Table, and joining her is cookbook author and Emmy Award Winner documentary host Raghavan Iyer. 


Midtown Global Market's Kitchen in the Market's Molly McDonald Herrmann is running our cooking show, while Lynne and Raghavan play our market's version of the Splendid Table fan favorite "Stump the Cook." Lynne will select the ingredients, Molly and our guest chef, Dustin Thompson of St. Genevieve will cook it up in a pan! 

This is truly one of our market's best and biggest days of the year! And you can have reserved front row seating with advanced purchase. All other seating is free of charge, first come-first serve. Seating is available starting at 10AM. 


Our market is a 501c3 charitable organization. All proceeds from ticket sales go to the Linden Hills Farmers' Market's FARMERS FUND. This fund subsidizes farmers' stall fees throughout the season. 

Featuring Lynne Rossetto Kasper, James Beard Award Winner, creator and former host of the Splendid Table on America Public Media and MN Public Radio

Also featuring Raghavan Iyer, James Beard Award Winning Cookbook Author, Emmy Award Winning Documentary Host and renowned educator

Plus, Kitchen in the Market and St. Genevieve's Chef Dustin Thompson will serve as chief culinary creators during our market version of the Splendid Tables' fan favorite "Stump the Cook."
