The Chili Challenge is the market’s 2015 kick off fundraiser. Held in January for the 4th straight year, the Chili Challenge invites customers to vote for their favorite chili, grab a recipe in preparation of the upcoming Super Bowl (or simply to fight off the cold winter months), and experience the vibrant winter market.
Admission for the event is $5.00, which includes tasting of all 10 chili dishes along with a cornbread side prepared by Feebert’s Bakery, a daily market vendor and Grits Crackers by market vendor, Pat Koegl.
Proceeds will benefit the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market.
The Greensboro Farmers Curb Market operates year round on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. and seasonally, (mid-April thru Dec.) on Wednesday 8 a.m. to 1 pm.
