Bennington Farmers’ Market to Host Macaroni & Cheese Contest
Is your macaroni and cheese worthy of comfort food glory? Find out Saturday, February 2, at the Bennington Farmers Market’s third annual Macaroni and Cheese Cookoff. The contest will be held during regular market hours, 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., at the First Baptist Church at 601 Main Street in Bennington. Amateur cooks will be serving samples of their best macaroni and cheese to visitors to the Market, who will then vote on their favorites. Tickets for the samples are $1 each or $5 for six. Everyone leaves with full stomachs and the satisfaction of participating in a good cause – all the proceeds will benefit programs at Bennington County Meals on Wheels. The top three vote-getters will win prizes – as well as Wooden Spoon trophies. Individuals and groups are encouraged to join the fun as chefs or samplers. For those who want to compete, the entry fee for each crock of macaroni and cheese is $5. For more information or to register, call Audrey at 802-733-6981 or email email@example.com.
