      1. I called Wegman’s Columbia last week – they said they weren’t doing the roasting this year. Anyone else know of places in central MD doing so?

        1. To follow-up on my previous email…when I saw the roasting schedule, I called Columbia Wegman’s back. They are doing roasting, but it’s more restrictive than usual. For cases, they say they will do pre-orders only; Customer Service (rather than the usual Catering Department) is taking the orders. Apparently there is a way to walk up and do smaller quantities, but I did not ask for details.

          1. I called the Wegmans in Abingdon, Maryland and customer services confirmed that they will be roasting hatch chile on August 27th, 28th and 29th, 2021.

            Roasting is scheduled to begin at 9AM on the 27th.

          2. I found some Hatch fresh labelled “fiery hot” at Giant in Wheaton, not quite fiery but maybe medium or a tad hotter. Got a box of mail order hot Sandias and they were truly hot, thank goodness.

            1. Giant in Wheaton has raw medium, no roasting. If I found raw hot I would figure out how to roast them but I’m not great at it

              1. Hi Tim,
                I’m originally from NM. You can roast them in your oven. Place foil in the lower rack (this will catch the drippings). Oven should be set on broil. Place chile on the top rack. You must check it as it is set to highest heat. Once you get the cook consistency, pull your rack out and flip the chile. Once that side cooks, take them out. It’s a process but worth it if you can find someone to roast them. Good luck.

            2. Just called Columbia to find out times for this weekend and they let me know they cancelled the event due to poor quality. Not sure about other locations.

            3. Wegmans DID cancel their events this week. But the manager told us that they WILL be doing the roast next weekend at the Frederick store. And it will be the only location probably in the area and potentially the last roast, they said they may not do it again.

            4. Wegmans in Frederick just told me the roasting was pushed back a week to Aug 23-26 because the harvest was later than expected.

            6. Well, it’s not Pueblo Chile which is superior, but being out in MD where green chile isn’t a thing, this will have to do. Stoked because I only have one bag left in my freezer!

              1. Colorado chili is lame!! If you anything bout chile…. New Mexico is the chile capital of the world & our chile is far more robust & full of flavor & heat. Sorry to burst your bubble or rain on your parade but Hatch, New Mexico chile is #1!! That’s coming from New Mexico Native American Pueblo Indian. Chile is part of our culture & cuisine.

            7. What are the prices for the Hunt Valley, Maryland event? Also, is roasting available? Can’t wait to go. Already took the day off.

              1. Here’s how the Bel Air Wegmans holds their annual Hatch Chile weekend:

                They’ll have roasters set up in the parking lot near the store, and samples either near the roasters, or by the entrance. That’s because they’re selling hatch chiles with several levels of heat – mild, medium, hot, and sometimes extra-hot. Heat varies year-to-year, so it’s best to check before you buy. (Last year the mediums were pretty mild, but the year before even the milds had a touch of heat)

                If you want to buy a box of roasted chile, let them know how much and the heat you want. You’ll pay inside and pick it up as you leave (they roast by order). (I think boxes are 30 lbs.) They will have smaller trays and fresh chile available for sale inside.

                They will also have a lot of prepared foods and samples available inside with hatch chiles. For example, stuffed chiles with crab, or with beef, hatch chile bialys (bagels) – and one year they even had a hatch chile and apple strudel. The hot bar will also have a lot of hatch recipes, and the cheese department will be selling cheeses and dips with hatch chiles.

            8. Unity Church Hill Nursery at 3621 Church Hill Road in Church Hill Maryland has an abundance of Hatch Green Chili Peppers growing and is looking for a someone with a Chili Roaster or someone to come and hold a Chili Roasting event

              1. I want only Hatch Chile from Hatch NM….is that where your chile originated from?? Thank you…its the best because of the desert weather.
