Calling All Foodies and Amateur Chefs for Twisted Tomato Day Salsa Recipe Contest

Kansas City, MO —The tomato…locally grown in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors is a delight to many and always an eagerly anticipated farmers’ market staple. Tomatoes will be featured front and center during the Twisted Tomato Day Festival on Saturday, July 3, from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Fresh, locally grown tomatoes, including many hard-to-find heirloom varieties will be available for purchase at vendor stalls throughout the City Market.

The City Market is calling all foodies and amateur chefs. If you have a particularly tasty vegetable or fruit salsa recipe and can stand the “heat” join us for the City Market Salsa Recipe Contest from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Compete against other amateur chefs for culinary bragging rights and win some great prizes in the process. To register, download the registration form at www.thecitymarket.org. Submit your registration no later than Wednesday, June 30.

Kids, the Twisted Tomato Day will offer plenty activities for you as well; try your hand at tomato put-put and see if you can sink a hole in one. Plant your own vegetable seeds and paint with tomatoes with Wonderscope Children’s Museum. Mother Nature will be on site with her whimsical stories and puppets and you can test your farmer knowledge at the National Agricultural Center Trivia Wheel.

Additional Festivals will take place the first Saturday of each month. Be sure to mark your calendar for these upcoming City Market events:

August 7 Crazy Corn Day

September 4 Pepper Party

October 2 Harvest Festival

Sharing food with another human being is an intimate act that should not be indulged in lightly.
