So if you think you make the BEST slaw, salad or side, you should bring at least four quarts of a homemade cold vegetable side dish to downtown Hillsborough's Public Market House between 8-10 a.m. June 19.
The cost to enter is $6 but contestants receive $4 in Eno River Farmers Market coupons with their entry.
The public can enjoy all the entries by paying $4 for four samples, or pay more to taste more. Folks will choose the People's Choice Award and a panel of judges will select first and second place winners, as well as a "Best Use of Local Ingredients" winner.
The deadline to enter is June 12. For a registration form and the rules, go HERE.
