The 2013 Federal Way Farmers Market Chili Cook-Off, held Sept. 28, ended early because of a torrential downpour, but still made close to $2,500 in ticket sales.

The money will be split between the South King Firefighters Foundation, Communities in Schools and the Federal Way Farmers Market.

The Federal Way police team Top Shots received the judges’ first-place award. South King Fire’s B Shift team won second place and the People’s Choice Award, while third place went to another firefighter team, The Boots.
