The Texarkana, Texas Farmers’ Market will host its annual Best Salsa in the Ark-La-Tex Contest Saturday July 29th, from 7:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. at the Texarkana, Texas Farmers’ Market, 305 Texas Boulevard, Texarkana, Texas.
Market manager, Holden Fleming, invites everyone to participate by making salsa or taste testing.
“The public is encouraged to enter their best salsa recipe into one of 6 categories; mild, medium, hot, smokin’ hot, specialty, and a special children’s category for participants 13 and under.” Fleming said. “To enter, simply bring four pints of salsa to the Farmers’ Market the morning of the event.”
Salsa registration starts at 7:30 a.m. and free tastings will be available at 8:30 a.m. Winners for each category will be announced at 11:00 a.m. Each categories’ winner will receive a prize courtesy of the Texarkana, Texas Farmers’ Market.
Along with the salsa contest, local vendors will be on hand selling fruits and vegetables, arts and crafts, and an assortment of other goods. Live music provided by “Jazz by Bryan and Cathey” will keep things cool, and special booths for children will provide fun for market-goers of all ages.
Fleming has been pleased with this year’s Farmers’ Market.
“This has been the biggest and most successful season in our history with more than 25 different vendors participating throughout the year,” Flemind said. “We’ve really enjoyed seeing the Market grow in both vendors and customers, and want to invite everyone out to help us to close out the market season.”
The Texarkana, Texas Farmers’ Market is an open-air market in historic downtown Texarkana that provides an avenue for local vendors to sale their products while promoting healthy, locally grown food.
