The folks at the Westport Farmers' Market like to pretend that winter doesn't exist, and that farmers' markets are things that should be held all year round. To celebrate the fact that they're still open in January, they'll be holding a cabbage recipe contest on Saturday morning. Prepare your favorite cabbage dish and have it in by 10:30 a.m. and chef Nancy Roper from Boxcar Cantina and Bill Taibe from LeFarm and whelk will pick their favorites, declaring a winner at noon. The cabbage used must come from a local farm, and the name of the farm must be noted on the entry. The winner will receive a Westport Farmers' Market shopping tote filled with goodies.
