  1. Anyword on Hatch Chile this year, August 2020? Recently moved to TN and looking to stock up on chile for the year. Thank you!

    1. Hey there. Any update on the times for Franklin, TN this Saturday the 24th?
      Also, this is for buying and roasting the green chiles correct?

            1. Wondering why the 24th date was canceled? Just drove 1.5hrs to franklin to pick up some. Is there any word on the September 9th date in Gallatin ? Will it be canceled also? Very disappointed.

            2. Looking to find Hatch Green Chile in East Tennessee. There are a couple of Krogers in Johnson City and Kingsport. Don’t need them roasted. I roast my own on the grill.

                1. Got an email 8/19/18 from Fresh Market (Memphis) that they are taking preorders for a case. Haven’t been to Memphis yet to see if they have any in-store.

                  They also noted they will have:
                  Gourmet Hatch Chile Burgers
                  Beemster Hatch Chile Gouda
                  Hatch Macaroni & Cheese
                  Lantana Hatch Hummus

                  They also provided a recipe for Hatch Chile Verde with Pork and four other recipes!

                2. It looks like Fresh Markets in Memphis have Hatch chile available online for pickup orders! Two options are available: mild and hot. We found a few pounds at Sprouts on Poplar this past weekend that we will roast up and try this week. We just moved here so we are so happy to see chile out here!

                3. Fresh Markets in Knoxville bring in green chili every year but it is from Young Guns Farms. They will roast for you if you want.

                4. Roasting green chili is a piece of cake if you have a grill its a done deal being from Las Cruces I roast my own unfortunately it’s from Krogers and not Hatch

                5. Will anyone in the Memphis TN area have Hatch Green Chile this year ??? Walmart & Krogers are the grocery stores in our area. Thanks !!!!

                    1. Being from Las Cruces living in the Memphis area now how soon and where will I be able to fine this chile. Here in the area we have kroger, of course Walmart, sprouts

                        Have u seen Hatch or even Buano out in the stores
                        I’m trying to tell my friends to make the stuff with Chile.
                        Being from N.M and wanting to move that why I need my CHILE

                      2. We have our own roaster, we buy a 20/25 lb box directly from hatch chile and roast it ourselves. We’re over in Lakeland (suburb of Memphis), give us a shout out if you want to buy a box and use our roaster.

                      3. If you live near a Chuy’s, they have a green chile week in August I think, and they have fresh roasted before as part of that. And I have seen Hatch brand canned chiles at both Publix and Whole Foods.

                      4. There are several restaurants in middle Tennessee that serve hatch green chile but I don’t know if any place that roasts them

                          1. looking at growing and roasting green Chile’s in Tennessee. Am familiar of Chile varieties and used right close to Hatch,NM for 52 years.

                            1. Growing up Back West in eastern New Mexico, I picked a lot of green chile as a kid and teenager. Different rows had different hotness levels. None of the farmers ever shared their secrets for creating various levels of hotness. We always speculated it was varying the amount of watering during the season. Out East, do you think it rains too much to grow hot green chile? Do you think the high rainfall will effect the intensity of the flavor?
