Our firefighters will bring a truck for children to explore from 10:30 – 12:30.
Members of the Chappaqua and Millwood Fire Department will taste and judge the chili!

The rules are simple: Amateur chefs only.
Please list all ingredients on paper with your name and phone number.
Contestants must bring their WARM chili to the market before 10:30am.

We prefer if the chili is in a crock pot so that we can keep it warm.
Judging will begin at 11am! We will provide bowls and spoons for tasting

along the toppings and chips.

And we'll be selling bowls of contestants’ chili for $2 to shoppers after the judging.
Judging will be based on appearance, aroma, taste. Please put your name on a piece of tape and attach to your crock pot. Extra credit for any chili that contains ingredients from the Chappaqua Farmers Market.


There will be 3 winners.
1st Place winner will get $30 in market bucks.
2nd Place winner will get $20 in market bucks.
3rd Place winner will get $10 in market bucks.

The winners will also receive other goodies from the market.We are accepting a maximum of 15 entries!
Please email with your name

and cell # if you wish to enter.

We will do our best to accommodate last minute entries but please send an email to be sure to have a spot at the judging table.
