The Mills River Farm Market will host Summer Squash-arama, a festival dedicated to summer squash, on Saturday, July 20!
The market, conveniently located in the parking lot at Mills River Elementary School, 94 School House Rd., opens at 8:00 am and closes at 12:00 pm.
The Mills River Farm Market is a producer-only market with farms located within a 50 mile radius. This gives the shopper a chance to talk with the grower about their growing practices as well as receive the freshest food possible. The Summer Squash-arama will have recipes, samples, cooking demonstrations, a summer squash tasting, and so much more in celebration of summer’s most prolific vegetable! Be sure to bring in that squash your garden forgot for the Giant Squash Contest: winner gets $10 in market tokens! Music will be provided by Tommy Burton.
Linda Brittain, Treasurer of the Mills River Farm Market, is excited about this festival. “The summer squash is one of the most prolific garden vegetables. We look forward to celebrating with our community this humble vegetable that gives us so much without asking a lot from us.”
