University Grill Teams up with Farmers Market

Chef Eddie cooks at FSW – Florida Southwest College – Farmers Market

Fort Myers, FL – (Oct. 28, 2015) – Chef Eddie, from the University Grill located on Cypress Lake Dr. and Summerlin Ave. in Fort Myers, will be at the Farmer’s Market at Florida Southwest College (FSW) on Sat., Nov. 7th from 10am until noon. He’ll be located at the Maverick Meat tent, creating a wonderful dish showcasing their prime grade meats that they distribute locally to fine restaurants throughout Southwest Florida. University Grill uses their steaks as do restaurants on 5th Ave. S. and 3rd St. in Naples. Locals are able to purchase their excellent cuts of beef at all six of the Local Roots Markets. “I have loved cooking since I was a young boy,” stated Chef Eddie. “Having prime cuts available and being able to integrate fresh local ingredients will be wonderful and will give market patrons an idea of how they can use many of the tempting items found at the market on that day.”

Some of the vendors that may be participating in their activity include: JC’s Daily Bread, Chiquita Caliente, Maverick Meats, Venus Veggies and Father’s Greenhouse (both organic), Big Cheese and tropical fruit grower Wonders of Nature. “We are so excited to have Chef Eddie pop over to the market to demonstrate how to use some of our farm fresh ingredients,” stated Betsy Ventura and Jean Baer. “We love the fact that University Grill and their sister restaurants support the farmers markets by buying from the local growers, butchers and artisans which in turn strengthens our community.”

We invite you to stop in the Fort Myers Farmers Market @ FSW Sat. Nov. 7th and every Saturday through April 30th to see the assortment of foods awaiting your discovery. Spark your creativity and feed yourself well. Discover the amazing variety of really good food that our community produces while you support local businesses.
