GreenThumb's Fresh Chef Contest will challenge 10 community members to create their most delicious and nutritious dish with local and healthy ingredients at our annual Harvest Fair on September 15, 2018. The winner will be chosen by a VIP panel of foodies and chefs.
Ages 12 and up are welcome to participate in the Fresh Chef Contest. Pre-registration is required, and registration will close when the contest has reached capacity. Participants will be notified shortly after registration closes of whether they have been selected to participate in this year’s Fresh Chef Contest.
