Chile Pepper Day


It’s HOT-HOT-HOT! Peppers are in their prime in mid-September and there are an amazing number of sweet and hot varieties available from EFM vendors. Popular in Central America for thousands of years, peppers are now a favorite of many local chefs and home cooks. Just ask EFM’s produce farmers about how different varieties can add flavor and often a bit of a kick to recipes. And if you can take the heat, join other fire-eaters at EFM’s infamous “10 Deadly Peppers” Hot Pepper Eating Competition to test how hot you can go!
