Today’s Market Features GrazeFest

farmersmkt Today’s downtown Farmers’ Market event features GrazeFest, a celebration of grass-fed and pasture-raised farm foods. Indulge in farm animal themed cupcakes from Sweet T, a cakery, learn barbeque secrets from expert pitmasters, and participate in the many other fun-filled activities.

The event features a pig pickin’, the second annual ice-cream eating contest with Lumpy’s Ice Cream, and bluegrass music by Old Habits. Aspiring pitmasters will have the opportunity to learn from the best—expert Bob Garner and chefs from The Pit will share seasoning secrets, barbecue history, and chopping techniques during their 11 am demonstration. Festival goers should come hungry for The Pit’s NC style barbecue sandwiches, prepared from pork raised on Animal Welfare Approved farms, which will be available for $5.  Health conscious customers can stop by the WakeMed Center City Physicians booth for a free blood pressure screening.  At 11:30 am, kids are invited to a special EGGstravaganza with egg relays and a special kids ice cream eating contest.  Ongoing kids activities throughout the day include a market scavenger hunt and a farm themed version of Jeopardy—“farmpardy.”

The event runs from 10am to 2pm in City Plaza.
