Don’t worry if you missed tasting the wonderful selection of salsas at King George Farmers’ Market’s Salsa Showdown on July 20. You can download the recipes for nearly all of the salsas and try your hand at making them yourself.
Six ribbons were awarded for judge’s choice and people’s choice. Many of the day’s 725 visitors sampled entries and voted for their favorite in each of the three categories. Caitlin Davis of the Tides Inn Market in Colonial Beach served as judge and awarded three ribbons as well.
