Want to have a potato sack race for my kid's bday party. They sell them online for a ridiculous price. Anybody know a local source?

    What about checking with a place that goes through a lot of potatoes? I know I've seen bags of potatoes stacked out behind the P. Terry's on N. Lamar. Can't remember if they were burlap bags though.

      A long time ago i got burlap coffee sacks for this purpose from Anderson's coffee. I'd call first, though.

        Ask 5 Guys.. If I recall they have them stacked up. I can't imagine they keep them. I think Mighty Fine might too.
