CFRC and Chef Maurice Boire Return to the Market
This Sunday, August 4th, we will have two of our partners returning to the market. CFRC community radio will be providing music for the day, and Chef Maurice Boire will be leading a talk on local foods in restaurants.
CFRC 101.9 is Kingston’s only campus- community radio station: not-for-profit, volunteer-powered media that fills the gap left by the mainstream. Offering diverse music and spoken word programming 24/7: over the air at 101.9FM in the Kingston area and worldwide on-line, as well as free broadcast skills training and experience to members of the community. CFRC has been broadcasting since 1922, making them the longest-running campus-based broadcaster in Canada. Learn more from their booth on Sunday, and at their website: www.cfrc.ca
Located on the shores of the Cataraqui River, The River Mill is one of Kingston’s only waterfront restaurants, occupying the waterside length of the 125-year-old, award-winning Woolen Mill Building. The River Mill masterfully blends the historic with the contemporary by complimenting this beautiful heritage setting with a bright, modern decor, and a menu that is as innovative and creative as it is delicious.
Chef Maurice Boire is one of Kingston’s young up-and-coming chefs, and brings a creative spark and fresh mindset to his classical French cuisine. He is an advocate for the use of local and sustainable ingredients in restaurants, and enjoys working with farmers to create partnerships for long term success. This year he has started a rooftop garden at the River Mill to supplement his vegetable and herb supply, and will be bringing samples of this for market guests to try. He will be speaking beginning at 11:00. Learn more at http://www.rivermill.ca/.
