Do you have a prized green tomato recipe? Here’s your chance to win a prize with it. Do you have a secret family recipe for collards or some other greens? Come and show it off. You don’t have to register ahead of time. Simply bring your dish to the designated table at the farmers’ market by 11:30 a.m. and OKT will register you on site. We will provide electricity to keep your crock-pot warm.

At 12: p.m., our local celebrity judges will taste and evaluate the dishes for taste, texture, nutritional content, presentation and wow factor. Prizes will be awarded for first place, second place and honorable mention at 2 p.m.

As part of the event, OKT will be handing out free Green Tomato Cookbooks.
