Cooking Demos, Farm Tours, Pie Cook-Offs, and More Can’t-Miss Food Events This Week 

Freedom Farms

Cash in your Fourth of July rain check early. On July 9, with a dreary forecast still pending, a few local farms invite you to celebrate Southern food in true North Carolina fashion.

In its mission to connect people with ideas and resources for a more equitable food system, the Raleigh Food Corridor project hosts Second Saturdays to celebrate and empower our local food community. This week, chef Geoff Seelen of Piedmont Biofarm and pastry chef Andrew Ullom of AC Restaurants offer free cooking demos at Camden Street Learning Garden, utilizing the quintessential summer ingredient: tomatoes. You can also join in on the blackberry brigade (yeah, that's a thing), competing for the biggest berry haul from nearby Raleigh City Farm.

You've got a few days to perfect a pie recipe and enter Duke Homestead's pie contest for its Pork, Pickles & Peanuts event on Saturday. Your best flaky crust will share the limelight with pit masters competing for best barbecue, plus an array of North Carolina food vendors (pickles, peanuts) and museum history tours with a scavenger hunt for kids.

Also on Saturday, Funny Girl Farm, on Erwin Road, hosts a Pie & Loco Pop-Up with East Durham Pie Company and Locopops. The farmstand will offer seasonal produce for sale and samples, like Chapel Hill Creamery cheeses and Big Spoon Roasters peanut butter. Free farm tours are at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
