Bacon Recipe Contest @ The Westport Farmers' Market

Lori Cochran

Westport Farmers’ Market is starting 2015 right...with a Bacon Recipe Contest. 

Westport Farmers' Market is challenging Fairfield County to bring out their best bacon recipe on January 24  to the Westport Farmers’ Market located at 7 Sylvan Lane, Westport, CT (inside Gilbertie’s Herb Garden).  At 11:00 a.m.  Celebrity Judges will be Chris Hickey, co-owner  and Chef Carlos from The Spread will taste their way through the entries declaring a winner at high noon.

The winner will receive a market bag full of goodies and a WFM t-shirt. The winner’s recipe  will be shared with the 3,000 people who receive the WFM newsletter each week.  There is one stipulation to the contest – the bacon that is used must be from one of the WFM farmers and the name of the farm must be noted with the entry.
