Ribbons will be awarded in several categories: biggest pumpkin or watermelon, biggest heirloom squash, biggest root vegetable, biggest apple, biggest chile, oddest vegetable and wild card vegetable. We will also be reading the winning poems from the children’s poetry contest. Dexter Trujillo and students will be baking all afternoon in our horno. Copies of the Double 2011/12 A Farming Chapbook will be available free to participants on the Contest Day. Winners of this year’s contest will appear next season in the 2013 Chapbook.

 Our October 7th Contest Day is also a regular Market Monday, 10 am- 5pm. The Market is located at 1005 N. Railroad Avenue. Visitors can find heirloom squash, pumpkins, apples, onions, late tomatoes, chile, horno-roasted chicos, ristras, jams and other treats.
