Local Chefs to Compete for 'Golden Basket Award' at Boalsburg Famers' Market
In celebration of Local Foods Week, the Boalsburg Farmers' Market will present the Golden Basket Award to one winning local chef on Tuesday.
Centre County chefs competing in the cook-off include:
- Jamie Steffen, the American Alehouse

The winner will receive the "Golden Basket Award."
