Piqua Farmers Market Hosts Tomato Salsa Contest

On Thursday, August 29 the Piqua Community Farmers Market will be hosting its eleventh annual tomato salsa contest.  Salsas will be judged in either the hot, mild or most unusual category. Winners of the first three places in each category will receive Piqua Community Farmers Market money.


The salsa must be homemade and cannot be so hot that it makes people cry! To enter bring one pint (approximately two cups) of salsa to the market by 5:30 p.m.  Following the judging, taste tests will be available for Piqua Community Farmers Market customers and vendors.


The Piqua Community Farmers Market is held each Thursday through September 19 from 3:30 – 6:30 p.m. on High Street in front of the Fort Piqua Plaza. The weekly market is organized by Mainstreet Piqua. For more information call 773-9355.
