Soup-a-Palooza proves popular during dreary weather

The gloomy weather on Tuesday, Nov. 5 had people in the mood for soup, apparently. So much so that the Emporia Farmers Market Soup-a-Palooza ran out of soup during the noon hour.

Market manager Tracey Simmons says they started with 6 roasters and a crockpot full of soup, and it didn't take long to deplete their soup supplies.

The sausage potato was first to go, followed by the turkey chili and beefy vegetable. Money raised from today's Soup-a-Palooza will pay for the Farmers Market operating expenses.

The staff on hand, including Radius Brewing Company's Colby Fuller, had been making more soup to meet demand until the end of the day.

The Soup-a-Palooza went until 7 pm at the Lyon County Extension Office.
