Come One, Come All to Vegtablooza ‘09 - Sat., Sept. 12!

If you’ve never been to the North City Farmers’ Market, or even if you’ve been every week, this week’s market is one not to be missed!  Come on out tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 12, from 9 a.m. until noon for a great celebration of farm-fresh food and a taste of a community in the midst of a phenomenal rebirth. 

So, what is a Vegtablooza?  This special event is our city’s “first festival celebrating fruits and vegetables”, with great musical entertainment, free food tastings and cooking demonstrations, and contests galore - including prizes for best apple pie, best tomato, best vegetarian or vegan dish, strangest fruit or vegetable, biggest fruit or vegetable.  If you’ve got a great recipe for a delicious apple pie, bring your pie and enter it in the contest.  If you’ve got something else that might qualify for any of the other contests, please bring it along, and who knows, you might go home with a prize!

Come on by to buy some food (you’ve got to get your groceries anyway, so why not get something healthy and fresh, and support a good cause and have fun all at the same time?) and stay for the festivities.  This week’s food will include watermelons, tomatoes, fingerling potatoes, okra, banana peppers, acorn squash, delicata squash, basil, mint, coriander, and much, much more!

In addition to our usual live music (starting at 9:45 a.m.), we’ll have children’s activities (including face painting and pictures with the Giant Carrot) and free health screenings by Grace Hill Health Center’s mobile health van. 

Tell your neighbors, bring the kids, and join in the celebration!  The market takes place every Saturday morning along the south side of the intersection of N. 14th Street and St. Louis Avenue, right across the street from Crown Candy Kitchen and at the edge of the Crown Square redevelopment of the former 14th Street Pedestrian Mall.
