While we like to think our market is simply the best, there are farmers’ markets across the country that are outstanding also! To recognize these events in communities across the nation, the United States Department of Agriculture designated the first full week of August as National Farmers’ Market Week. So to showcase the fruits of our labor, we’re kicking it up a notch with an all out “Food Fight.” On August 11th, food vendors will be serving up special menu items and competing to get the most votes to be named the winner of our Food Fight at Farmers’.
So whether you’re a professional taste tester, self proclaimed foodie or you just flat out love to eat, we invite you to come Discover Local Flavor. Stop by the information booth on the corner of Higuera and Chorro at 6 PM on August 11th to receive a Market Map listing the vendors that are participating in the night’s event. Visit one, two, three or all of the vendors to try their unique dishes. You will have the opportunity to voice your expert opinions on the same Food Fight market map you received at the beginning of the night. Check off your favorite vendors and return the map to the information booth to be entered to win a gift basket. The winning Food Fight vendor will be announced at 8:15 PM as well as in the Downtown Association’s weekly newsletters and social media. This event will be fun for all ages so be sure to bring the whole family; there will be plenty of food!
