Guest Chef Erica Bell features wings at Winter Farmer’s Market Saturday


Come to the Winter Market this Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon to experience one example of a growing trend in food – convenience that doesn’t sacrifice nutrition and quality. Erica Bell of Erica’s kitchen will be cooking at the Indoor Winter Farmer’s Market, using fresh, local ingredients from our market vendors.

Erica prepares food “simply to enhance flavor without sacrificing nutrition.” She shows that even in winter, great ingredients are available. There will be limited orders available this Saturday but you can pre-order your meal here:

Her menu will include: Indonesian chicken wings, warm Korean BBQ salad (with napa cabbage, butternut squash, green onions, broccoli, and rice with Ssamjang sauce), and cooked apples with yogurt and granola.

Erica’s kitchen offers “a health-driven, seasonal takeout merging nutrient-rich ingredients with a flavor-forward menu that rotates weekly to let you experience tasting ingredients at the peak of their freshness.” Erica is experienced with Argentinian, Lebanese, Asian, Moroccan, Spanish, Indian, French, and Southern cuisines. The Winter Farmer’s Market is excited to welcome her as a guest chef this Saturday Jan. 27. Connect with her at or on Facebook at
