Flavortown Market Fun Facts [Video]

by in Shows, May 24th, 2014

Did you know Flavortown Market is a fully operational grocery store packed with more than 20,000 items? Click play on the video above to get an inside look at the market (which took the team just two weeks to set up), built expressly for Guy’s Grocery Games (Sundays at 8|7c).

And what does the culinary team on the set of Guy’s Grocery Games do with all that leftover food each week? The team worked diligently to maintain a recycling program for waste management. Crew members always got to take home items that may be on the way out, but most of the products went to a local farmer, local food banks and charities.

The farmer composted everything — including meat, produce and dairy.

The culinary team also gave to local organizations: The Redwood Empire Food bank, Worth our Weight and Doug the Farmer. There was almost zero waste, as everything was recycled, composted or eaten. And because the show was shot in Santa Rosa, Calif., these local organizations would pick products up daily.

    Fun show to watch. The spoilers during the show are funny and the judges have been great. Guy is in his element on this show.

    I am starting not to like triple g because its an American game. Why have foreigners on it?

  3. Sharon says:

    The game would be a little more exciting if you offered an extra $5,000 for getting all 20 items at the end.

  4. Debbie says:

    I think the chef from Iraq was so much fun to watch! Loved his warm and fun personality!

  5. Bonnie says:

    I'd like the food to go to a shelter rather than compost

  7. The team work for waster management was extra ordinary. I liked it and looking forward for more updates like this. Thanks for sharing.
