It's Memorial Day weekend, which signals the start of summer (nice 11th hour appearance, sun) and with it, festival and fair season. One we're particularly excited for is the CUESA Urban Eats festival at Giants County Fair on June 20th. We're big fans of CUESA (see their weekly Market Watch column) and our fabulous Eat + Drink editors Sara Deseran and Jessica Battilana will be judging the fair's local homemade and homegrown food contest.
Think you make the best jam in the city? Grow the sweetest carrots? Bake the tastiest bread? Then sign up here to show off your talents. The winner will showcased on 7x7.com and receive two tickets to a Giants game. Also, just for entering, you'll get $5 off your next purchase at the Ferry Plaza Farmers market (just say you heard about the contest from 7x7).
So get to perfecting those recipes! But be nice on Sara and Jessica, the last taste-off they did involved every burger in the city.
