The Travelers Rest Farmers Market’s second annual bike day and tomato sandwich taste-off is this Saturday! Dozens of bike outfits from all over the Upstate will be there to answer all your bike-related questions, there will be live demos, a pump track, the goofy looking Conference Bike, and so much more. Kids and adults can decorate their Bike at the Regeneration Decorating Station and take it for a spin in the Bike Parades happening each hour all morning long. Local artist Kristen Coward will be on hand to give the… less creative… a helping hand, so there are no excuses. Bring those bikes and join the parade!
If you joined us last year you definitely remember the tomato sandwich taste-off! “This year it is a total TR throw down,” says Market Manager Adrienne Hawkins. Upcountry Provisions is returning to defend their title along side Sidewall, Shortfields, Whistlestop, and Williams Hardware, who are a first timer in the Tomato Sandwich Contest. Adrienne says there’s a surprise guest too, but she’s tight lipped. “It’s interesting what the restaurants do to manipulate the humble ingredients to elevate a tomato sandwich…. some grill, toast, marinate…. and some are purists, but no bacon is allowed!” she says.
The taste-off starts at 10:30am and goes until 12:3opm. Ticket prices are $6 and include a sample from each competitor, a great deal for a hearty lunch! Will Upstate Provisions be the reigning champs once again? Come and find out! It’s the market’s most talked about event of the season. You don’t want to miss it!
