Great Westport Soup Contest: Mmm Mmm Good!

If you thought the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce’s Best Pizza and Best Burger contests were great, you’ll really enjoy this year’s menu.

It’s guaranteed to be super.

Well, at any rate, “souper.”

March is “Westport Soup Month,” the Chamber says. First Selectman Jim Marpe makes it official on Monday (March 2, 12:30 p.m., Mystic Market).

All month long, 19 soup-making restaurants and markets will compete in 7 categories. Westporters can visit the venues (see below), then vote for

  • Best Chicken Soup
  • Best Beef Soup
  • Best Vegetable Soup
  • Best Asian Soup
  • Best Onion Soup
  • Best Matzoh Ball Soup
  • Best Chowder.

The contest runs March 1 to March 31. Voting can be done online (click here). All voters are entered into a drawing, to win free soup from one of the victors.

Winners will be announced in April.

Here’s wishing the Chamber — and all participants — many soupy sales.
