Finds & Happenings: Farmers Market Chili Cook-Off

Franklin Farmers Market

The Franklin Farmers Market will host  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:

  • Bear Creek Farm
  • Beaverdam Creek Farm
  • Hatcher Family Dairy
  • Little Spring Creek Farm
  • Red Cedar Bison
  • River Cottage Farm
  • Triple L Ranch
  • West Wind Farms

Chili Cook-Off event was made  possible by the  generous support of our  sponsor Unity Chiropractic of Franklin.  And don’t forget, folks, that all chili prepared by the  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. The Franklin Farmers Market is held each Saturday from 9 am – noon at the Factory in Franklin.
