Cooking demonstrations highlight regional traditions at Kentucky Crafted: The Market
FRANKFORT, Ky. – As shoppers browse the aisles of Kentucky Crafted: The Market, they may be drawn to the delightful aromas coming from the Foodways Stage presented by the Kentucky Folklife Program. The cooking demonstrations, food sampling and the sharing of recipes and stories are just one more reason this state-sponsored arts marketplace was voted best in the nation for the second year in a row by the readers of AmericanStyle magazine.
On March 19 and 20, Kentucky Crafted: The Market opens to the public at the Kentucky Exposition Center, South Wing B, Louisville, Ky, with more than 200 exhibitors of fine art and craft, architectural art, books, CDs, DVDs and artisan foods products. The Market also offers regional food samplings, children’s activities, artist workshops, literary activities including readings by Kentucky’s poets laureate, special exhibits, and narrative stages to explore Kentucky traditions.
