Food will be served from 1 pm to 3 pm or as long as food lasts. Participants will be able to vote for their People’s Choice Award until 2:45 pm.  The winner of both the Judge’s Choice & People’s Choice Award will be announced just after 3 pm. 

To add to the fun and festivities of the afternoon, performing in the lot of the el Ray Farmer’s Market during the Taste of Del Ray will be one of the area’s most popular bands, Elroy Jenkins with the band Addieville opening up for them.
