It's Punkin' Chunkin' Time At The Brainerd Farmers' Market

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Chunk a punkin’ this Saturday at the Brainerd Farmers’ Market for a chance to win a pumpkin just in time for Halloween

The Brainerd Farmers’ Market announces its first annual “Punkin’ Chunkin’ Contest.” The O’Neill Family Farm will supply the pumpkin, ready for Jack-O-Lantern carving and pie making. The game is simple: chunk a pumpkin as far as you can to win a free pumpkin. If your aim is better than your distance, try the “tomato toss.” Chances to win are $2 for a punkin’ chunk and $1 for the tomato toss.

Items available at the Farmers' Market include greens, potatoes, peppers, root veggies and more. . In addition to fresh harvest produce, the Brainerd Farmers’ Market features prepared meals, fresh bread, fresh eggs, locally raised meats, naturally made home cleaning products, kombucha, healthy pet foods, hand-crafted home decor and fashion adornments.  Also available are harvest season gifts crafted by local artisans

The Brainerd Farmers’ Market allows those in need of nutritional assistance with EBT to double their purchase dollars at every market. The Outreach for the “Double SNAP Dollars” program is made possible through a grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga, the Episcopal Diocese, and gifts from community members. SNAP recipients may bring their EBT cards to the market and obtain tokens which may be used to purchase fresh local produce, dairy products, meat products, honey, preserves, baked goods, plants used to produce food at home and more.

The Brainerd Farmers’ Market is open every Saturday from 10 a.m.-noon at the corner of Brainerd Road and Belvoir Ave. in the parking lot of Grace Episcopal Church. The market is open to the public and features local foods and crafts for the community from May through December each year.

Grace Episcopal Church, a 501(c) 3 non-profit, provides fiscal sponsorship and the physical location for the weekly farmers' market. Grace Episcopal Church is located at 20 Belvoir Ave. across from the Bi-Lo on Brainerd Road.
