Winter farmers market fees waived; chili cook-off brings crowdMar 24, 2017 By Andrea Novotny, Staff Writer
The Riverton Winter Farmers Market's Chili Cook-off competition and customer appreciation night brought a larger-than-average crowd Tuesday night.
Chili made by regular market vendor Jack Schmidt won the People's Choice grand prize. Deb Hudleston won in the locally sourced category, Kacee Thacker won the traditional category, and Spice Precise won in the spicy category.
Because of strong community support, vendor fees have been waived for winter markets as long as funds are available.
Winter markets continue from 4-6 p.m. every Tuesday at the United Methodist Church, located at 1116 West Park Avenue.
The first summer farmers market is scheduled for May 17 in the parking lot of St. John Lutheran Church in Riverton.
