Des Moines Farmers Market’s Annual Chili Cook-Off is this Saturday, Oct. 25


The Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market Annual Chili Cook-Off – coming this Saturday, Oct. 25 – is family friendly and is the culminating event for the market’s 2014 season.

It is a fun and delicious fundraiser for the Market Foundation, and is held on the last day of the market season, rain or shine.

Up to 15 teams fix up their best chili and anyone can try them.

Contestants and tasters come from all around the South Sound to enjoy this great event. Chili is served on a “first come basis”, starting at 11am and is served until 1pm, or until it runs out. Prizes are awarded for the top three finishers, voted by the tasters. A prize will also be awarded to the Best Team Theme.

A $5 taster fee gets you samples of several different kinds of chili, sample bowl, spoon, wet nap and the chance to vote for your favorite.

We will be collecting donations for the Des Moines Area Food Bank, so if you are able, please bring a donation.

Part of the net proceeds will benefit the Des Moines Dollars for Scholars and Southwest Seattle Business & Professional Women’s Foundation.
