Celebrate the sweet potato by cooking some for show

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, call 839-0705 or email

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.
