Shockoe Chef Showdown - a call to backyard growers

Got a garden that's overflowing with fruits and veggies? Have a ton of tomatoes, a colossal crop of cukes, a mound of melons? Wondering how you'll ever eat it all?

Sell them this Saturday at the 17th St Farmers Market during the Shockoe Chef Showdown. Booths are inexpensive, coming complete with cover and risers to display your wares, and no season-long commitment. You don't need to be licensed or inspected by any government office to sell produce at the farmers market. Just call or email Linette at 646-0377.

Be there to witness Richmond's inaugural culinary competition, with more than a dozen local chefs ready to battle for gustational domination!

My soaps and I will be there, of course.

I'm definitely going. Now I just need to decide if I'll be vending or cooking.
