Pepper Fest At Longmont Farmers' Market

The Boulder County Farmers' Market held weekly at the fairgrounds in Longmont will go all out on peppers tomorrow with an energized Pepper Fest. Here are the details from them (and note that there will be a lovely librarian from the library reading to kids, but it won't be me!):

Pepper Fest: This Saturday at the Longmont Farmers Market

Celebrate peppers—everything you can imagine from sweet, mini bells to tear-inducing dynamite—at the Longmont Farmers Market this Saturday, Sept. 12, where you can find over 40 varieties of peppers throughout the colorful market aisles.

Specialty dishes will include Hatch Green Chili Papusas, Wood-Fired Stuffed Bell Peppers, Smoked Pueblo Chili Chicken Tacos, Roasted Red Pepper Meringues, and pepper pastas, salsas and breads. Miller Farms and Pope Farm will be roasting fresh chili peppers at the festival.
