Announcing the Market’s first community contest, to be held on Saturday, August 18th 2012:
Join in this celebration of the abundance of fresh local summer produce! The winner of the Blue Ribbon Salsa Contest will be decided by our 3 celebrity judges:
- Chef Charles Thain of The Island House Restaurant
- Valerio Montalvo of Don Valerio’s Restaurants
- Ted Shockley, Editor of the Eastern Shore News
The salsa will be judged on flavor, originality and use of seasonal, locally grown ingredients. Creativity is encouraged! There is no charge to enter, and the winner of the blue ribbon will also take home a gift basket filled with great products donated by the Market’s own vendors!
No pre-registration required. No charge to enter.
On Saturday, August 18th bring a bowl of your favorite homemade salsa along with a copy of your recipe to the Market no later than 10 am to enter the contest. Judging will commence promptly at 10 am.
Winners will be announced at 10:30 am.
Of course, all salsa-makers are encouraged to shop for their ingredients at the Onancock Market, where a variety of local growers bring their peak-season offerings each week.
