Calling all young folks!
Draw your favorite veggie and get entered into a drawing for $25 in Market Bucks for you and your family to share!
Come on down by 12 noon on 8/2/14 to enter the contest, draw a picture of your favorite veggie from the Farmers Market, and tell us how you like it best: Raw? Steamed? Grilled? Baked? Roasted? Broiled? In pesto? In a salad? In a special recipe? So many choices!
The market will provide paper, crayons, and a clipboard or a space at the table for drawing. All pictures will be displayed at the market at the center tent during the market day and the Market Bucks drawing will take place at 12:30 that day. One picture/entry per child. You do not need to be present at the drawing to win.
Note: Depending on the age of the winning child, we suggest that the child get to spend at least $5 as they wish but will be supportive of the parent’s decision. Just let us know!
Don’t Forget to Vote! Help our market be in the top in Massachusetts. Right now we are #1 in MA!

To vote, you need only go to: lovemyfarmersmarket.org once a week and “pledge” how much you plan to spend at your favorite farmers market that week. You can pledge once a week up until midnight September 13. Let’s go for it!
Yarrow or one of his colleagues will be with us, twisting balloons in to magical creatures, and hula hoops, sidewalk chalk, and jump ropes will be out for the playing!
Hope to see you at the market August 2!
Lot’s to see, buy, watch, and enjoy!
