The Franklin Farmers Market is proud to present the first annual Local Farmers’ Chili Cook-Off, sponsored by Unity Chiropractic. On Saturday, March 5th, 2016, from 9 a.m. until noon, come and taste our farmers’ most famous chili recipes made with their own locally raised beef, pork, bison, chicken, and lamb, and you — our market shoppers — will be the judges! Simply sample each submitted pot of chili and cast your ballot by 10:45am on the day of the Chili Cook-Off. Winners will be announced at 11 a.m.
If you didn’t know already, the Franklin Farmers Market hosts the largest selection of locally raised meats in middle Tennessee, and we are excited to taste what these farmers’ are cookin’. Slow-simmered chili is perfect for winter, but made even better when made with locally raised meats. We’re excited to taste what kind of hearty creations our farmers produce for this exciting new chili cook-off community event.
Participating farms in the first annual Local Farmers’ Chili Cook-Off will be as follows:
This event would not be possible without the generous support of our wonderful sponsor Unity Chiropractic of Franklin. Thank you Dr. Devan Arman and staff for your focus on nutrition and the benefits of eating local foods! And don’t forget, folks, that all chili prepared by our farmers will be sampled out for our market shoppers to taste until it’s gone, so be sure and come early to taste as much chili as you can and to ensure your vote is cast! See you for the first annual Local Farmers’ Chili Cook-Off, and be sure to come hungry!
