We’re all about the beans this winter – local beans, that is! Get creative with these protein-packed powerhouses and you could win fabulous prizes! Enter your sweet or savory local bean recipe online between February 2-15 for your chance to win. The top 3 recipes will be sampled and voted on at the Burlington Winter Farmers’ Market on February 28.

How to Enter
