Whole Foods Tenley Sponsoring 2014 Pickling Contest

Homemade Pickles

Since 2010, the District of Columbia has had its very own State Fair highlighting the artistic, gardening, and culinary talents of District residents. It doesn’t matter that DC is not yet a state, the organizers thought it was long past time to showcase our fair city.

While the DC State Fair will take place in Shaw, it is open to entrants from across the city and draws sponsors from diverse District businesses. Our very own Whole Foods Market in Tenleytown, along with its sister store on P Street, has decided to get behind residents with a penchant for pickling.

From the DC State Fair: 

The DC State Fair is proud to announce Whole Foods P Street and Tenleytown as our sponsors of the 2014 Pickling Contest! Winning entries using any ingredients purchased at Whole Foods (please provide a receipt when dropping off your entry) will be eligible to display their recipe at an upcoming event at a Whole Foods market in DC.

If you are interested in entering the Pickled Foods Contest, you better hurry – the deadline is Saturday, September 13 Wednesday, September 17. For other contests and deadlines, check out the contest guide online.

Whole Foods is also sponsoring the Pie Contest.

The DC State Fair is Saturday, September 20 at Old City Farm and Guild, 925 Rhode Island Avenue, NW. Want to learn more? Visit their website at http://dcstatefair.wordpress.com/
