Strawberry Fest and Cook-Off This Thursday, June 26

Indulge your greedy side this Thursday by gathering up pints and pints of local, vine-ripe, sweet strawberries at the Medford Farmers Market. Our produce vendors will of course be bringing lots of fresh, ripe, locally grown strawberries for you to feast on and bring home.
Last year’s Strawberry Cook-off
Winner, Corinne, with her prize.
Oh, and are you a chef? Or are you perhaps just longing to try out a new recipe using sweet seasonal strawberries? Enter your creation in our Strawberry Cook-off! Last year we had 9 luscious entries, and the judges had a really hard time deciding which was “best”. (Really they had trouble just sampling all the entries!) 
This year we are encouraging you to try out a recipe that uses strawberries in a savory dish; think salsa, chutney, soup, smoothie, salad…you get the idea.

To enter the Strawberry Cook-off, just email with your name (and what you are bringing, if you know).
Then whip up your creation, and bring it to Thursday’s market before 5:30 pm, when judging will begin. Please bring a card that clearly lists all ingredients, and another that has your name and the name of the item you are making. Bring enough for the judges (typically three of them) and if you are feeling generous enough, for the hordes of kids (and adults) hoping for leftovers!
We look forward to seeing all the amazing, mouth-watering creations you and others will bring to the Cook-Off this year!
