The Second Annual Sweet Potato Competition, to celebrate National Sweet Potato Month, will take place at noon Saturday at the Broadway Market, 999 Broadway.
Contestants are to asked to bring a creative sweet potato dish; winners will receive a sweet potato-themed prize.
For more information, visit broadwaymarket.org, call 839-0705 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The market also plans a Fat Tuesday best doughnut and King Cake contest at 1 p.m. March 1, and even that is probably more than a health, fitness, nutrition and family matters editor should say!
Sweet potatoes, of course, are a power food, packed with vitamins, minerals and healthy fiber.
Both events are sponsored by Friends of Broadway Market District.
