The vibe inside this year-old kitchen and event space is very mellow, and you might find fans of Pal’s Takeaway munching on sandwiches and sharing the café space with budding food entrepreneurs working on their business plans. Behind the scenes, in the kitchen, are cooks, jam makers, and bakers preparing products for farmers markets, direct-to-consumer delivery companies like GoodEggs, and local stores. During the venue’s monthly Batch Made Market, guests can venture into the kitchen and taste what’s cooking. Click on the website and RSVP for free. Members of Forage Kitchen and the general public can take classes on the business of food at the adjacent Food Craft Institute. Check out their schedule here.
