Chefs Pasternack, Cook, and Ostrander to kick off Ridgefield Farmers’ Market Chef Series

Ridgefield Farmers' Market Chef Series Demos

When we talked with Chef Forrest Pasternack as he and owner Sal Bagliavio prepared to reopen Bailey’s Backyard, he told us of one of his dreams.  Having grown up in Ridgefield, he missed the Ridgefield Farmers’ Market that had shut down in 2012 and wanted it to reopen.  His wishes came true when it sprung up again this year.  Now Chef Pasternack is able to visit the market whenever he needs to load up on the local goodies that fuel his menu.
