Piqua Farmers Market Hosts Tomato Salsa Contest

posted in: Downtown News, Events | 0

On Thursday, August 31 the Piqua Community Farmers Market will be hosting its 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 should be made of ingredients that can be purchased from the Market (except things like limes, orange juice, mangos etc.)  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 5:15 p.m. on Thursday, August 31.  Following the judging, taste tests will be available for Piqua Community Farmers Market customers. Chips will be provided.


Coming up on Thursday, September 7 will be the Biggest Tomato Contest. The tomatoes can be ripe, green or anything in between. Details on both the Salsa Contest and the Biggest Tomato contest can be found in the Special Events tab at www.piquafarmersmarket.com


The Piqua Community Farmers Market is held each Thursday from 3 – 6 p.m. in front of the Piqua Public Library and is a project of Mainstreet Piqua.
