With the opening of our new store comes the unveiling of our Community Teaching Kitchen! Located in City Market’s South End store, the Community Teaching Kitchen is an educational space designed to build community through conversation, cooking, and skill-building. This space will primarily be used for City Market’s monthly classes and events and for hosting private classes for our Community Outreach Partners, local schools, and non-profits. Check out our class schedule here! Questions? Contact learn@citymarket.coop

This space will not be available for rental. If you are interested in this space, please contact our Outreach and Education Manager, Mae Quilty at mquilty@citymarket.coop to discuss possible opportunities for co-facilitation of private classes and collaborative events. Please note that priority for collaborations of this sort will be given to our Community Outreach partners, area non-profits, and local schools.
