Colle farmers market bids Pittsburg Farmers Market farewell as they close their season with the ‘Hot Soup Extravaganza’ tasting competition.

On November 7, Colle Farmers Market responds to an article published by the Morning Sun reporting the Pittsburg Farmers Market marking another successful year with the “Hot Soup Extravaganza,” a soup tasting competition where market patrons donated $3 and then cast their vote for their favorite. Colle Farmers Market bids the Pittsburg Farmers Market a seasonal farewell and congratulates their community contribution.

Morning Sun reports that of nine participants, “[e]ntries ranged from standards as bean soup, cooked by Eric Rosenblad, to Cozumel tortilla, a spicy soup that diners could dress up with tortilla chips, chopped avocado, lime wedges and feta cheese crumbles concocted by Alec Laverack.” Dana Parsons, who coordinated the event, encourages participants and attendees to mark their calendars for the 2013 “Hot Soup Extravaganza.” According to the article, winners of the tasting competition were Eric Rosenblad for first, Pam Ly winning second, and Paul Ross coming in third.
“This is our third year to do it and it has really taken off,” comments Parsons. “We always do this on the last Saturday of October, and we'll do it again next year on the same day.”

Colle Farmers Market, an online farming community, salutes the Pittsburg Farmers Market for their season and welcomes the return of the “Hot Soup Extravaganza.” Colle congratulates Dana Parsons for a successful event and commends her community contribution as the focal philosophy of the Colle Farmers Market community.

According to the article, the new Pittsburg Farmers Market site will be located on 11th Street and Larry Garman Ave., just east of Broadway next season.
