Farmer’s Market celebrates Cheerwine, reaches out to needy

Salisbury Farmer’s Market and Rowan Helping Ministries team up May 20 to wish Cheerwine Happy 100th Anniversary with the award winning Cheerwine Chili. 

Nate Valentine, the food service manager at Rowan Helping Ministries is going to demonstrate how to make his award-winning Cheerwine Chili during the Saturday morning Salisbury Farmer’s Market. 

His chili, which won first place in the annual Chili Cook-off, will be prepared and samples will be passed around along with samples of Cheerwine.   

Nate’s demonstration on how to make his chili commemorates Cheerwine’s 100th Anniversary Celebration which happens that same Saturday in downtown Salisbury. 

Salisbury Farmer’s Market, on behalf of Rowan Helping Ministries, will also be collecting canned food items and toiletries for their food pantry and homeless shelter. 

Items needed include jarred spaghetti sauce, canned tuna and chicken, pasta and canned vegetables.

Toiletries needed include toothpaste, bar soap, toothbrushes, shampoo etc. Please bring items you wish to donate to the market that day.

The Salisbury Farmer’s Market vendors will also dedicate Rowan Helping Ministries as the recipient of the “Share the Harvest” bounty that day. 

Vendors donate fresh produce from their booth at the end of the Saturday market to be distributed to Rowan Helping Ministries food pantry. 

Fresh produce is especially difficult to obtain for food recipients. Consumers can also buy extra produce that day to donate to Rowan Helping Ministries.

Salisbury Farmer’s Market, at the corner of South Jackson and West Fisher streets, across from the Rowan Library, is open every Saturday through mid-December from 8 a.m. to noon.
