Easton Farmers’ Market

This event has been rescheduled from Sept. 23rd.
Our infamous “Ten Deadly Peppers” Contest, now in its 14th year, takes contestants down a grueling (but extremely entertaining) road, starting with the ‘oh so mild’ jalapeño and ending with the blistering trifecta of Moruga Scorpion, Carolina Reaper, and Dragon’s Breath. Along the way, there’s audience trivia, prizes, sizzling music, and lots of laugh, tears and nail biting. Two time defending champ Kelly Joel Myers is the man to beat! But don’t discount 2022 runner up Matt Leto. And make way for Kris (The Scoville Unit) Fragale, the current American Belt Champion from the League of Fire. And lurking in the shadows is the formidable Charles Brennan who snuffed out both Myers and Fragale in other PA pepper matches. It’s gonna be HOT, HOT, HOT!
Contest starts at 11:00 am. Audience trivia with prizes for people and pups, and lots of twists and turns and sweat and tears along the way. Buckle up!
All hot peppers are locally grown and provided by Easton Urban Farm.
Contest limited to 20 participants. Preregistration is recommended.
