County Fair Day June 24 at the Wiregrass Farmers Market

June 15, 2017

The Wiregrass Farmers Market will host its annual County Fair Day on June 24 at the Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.  Participants can enter their best-kept recipes for a chance to win first place in a variety of categories.

All entries are due by 9:30 a.m. on June 24 at the Market.  Judging will take place from 9:30-11 a.m., and winners will be announced at 11:30 a.m.  An ingredients list must be provided, but not the recipe itself.  Interested persons can reserve a spot in the contest by e-mailing their name and category to wiregrassmarket@gmail.com.

Participants can submit entries for tastiest barbecue sauce, top pickled produce, prettiest flower arrangement (using homegrown/local flowers), best jam or jelly, best homemade pie, best homemade cake, and yummiest bread.  For pickles, jams, jellies, and barbecue, a minimum of two jars are needed to share at a sample table for market guests.

Children can compete in the County Fair by entering their best homemade cookies recipes.  The cookie category will be divided into two age groups.  There will be a contest for children ages five-eight and another for children ages nine-12 years old.
