Exploring Farmers' Market Cookin Kids
Cookin' Kids

Cooking Kids logo10 a.m. to approx. 12:30 p.m.

If your child is a culinary master in the making or just loves to help out in the kitchen, the Beverly Hills Farmers’ Market is the place to be.

Youngsters are welcome to enjoy Cookin’ Kids the 2nd Sunday of each month as part of our Kid Zone. Children will be introduced to fresh fruits and vegetables based on what’s in season. They will be able to taste the featured item of the month, learn about its health benefits, meet the farmer and get recipes that they can easily prepare at home.

This is a free event. Children must be accompanied by an adult and can drop by and participate anytime during the session. The Kid Zone includes pony rides and a petting zoo for a nominal fee every week  from  9 a.m. to 1 p.m. brought in by So-Cal Animals.



Yields 2 quarts


1 cup sugar

1 cup water

1 pound fresh California cherries, washed & pitted (about two cups)

1 cup fresh lemon juice

6 cups cold water

Mint leaves to garnish



In a small sauce pot heat sugar & 1 cup of water until the sugar dissolves.  Add 1 cup cherries, bring to a boil.  Simmer until the cherries begin to soften, about 2-3 minutes.  Set aside to cool.

Strain the cooled cherry syrup into a large pitcher, pressing on the cherries to release their juice. Discard cooked cherry mixture.  Add lemon juice & cold water to the syrup.  Stir in the remaining cherries.  Pour over ice & garnish with fresh mint leaves.
