The Chili Challenge is the market’s kickoff fundraiser for 2017. Local chefs, farmers, and food enthusiasts will compete for the bragging rights for the best chili in the Triad. Chili varieties will include locally sourced ingredients and toppings including pasture raised beef, pork, meat stocks, and herbs found within the market.

The Chili Challenge invites customers to vote for their favorite chili, grab a recipe in preparation of the upcoming Super Bowl and experience the vibrant winter market. Our chefs are sure to put a new culinary spin on this hearty winter tradition. It’s also a wonderful time to learn and taste local, pasture raised meats that are produced within a hundred miles of the market.

Six teams are competing this year including Market Vendors! Patrons will sample 6 chili recipes from the following teams served with a side of cornbread and gourmet grit crackers made with Old Mill of Guilford products.

• Meadows Family Farm
• Rothchild’s Farm
• Wallow Hollow with Chef Steve Terrill of Red Chair Dinners
• Augustino Gusto
• The Sweet Chili’s (Nimby Garden with Amy Lytle & family) with their “Cocoa Loco” vegetarian chili
• Team Christa & Todd (local food enthusiasts)

Patrons will enjoy live music at the event by Gary Mitchell beginning at 8 am followed by Laura Jane Vincent at 10 am.

The cost of the Chili Challenge is $5 per with proceeds benefiting the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market.
