Join us on October 24th for the 2nd Annual Southern Greens Festival!

Activities Include:

Greens Cooking Contest-

Do you think you have the best greens recipe out there?  Prepare a mess and bring it to the market for your chance to win a $50 cash prize!  Our judges will award $50 for best traditional greens and $50 for most creative greens.  Dishes should be brought to the market by 4:30 and judging will begin at 5pm.  We will provide chafing dishes to keep them warm.  Email maggie@hipdonelson.com with any questions.

Scarecrow Contest-

If you grow greens, you’ve got to have a scarecrow!  Last year, we had so much fun seeing all the unique scarecrows our customers built during the festival, so this year we’re making a contest of it!  Bring your pre-constructed scarecrow to the market, just like the greens cooking, we have a $50 cash prize for most traditional scarecrow and $50 cash prize for most creative scarecrow!  Judging will begin at 5pm.  Please make sure your scarecrow has a base or can stand on it’s own.  Email teresa@hipdonelson.com with questions. We look forward to seeing your creations!

We will also have a pumpkin carving station set up for all you pumpkin artists. Grab a pumpkin from one of our vendors and visit the carving station and show us your talents!  Scoops and knives will be provided.

Our band will be the wonderful Contemporary Folk group, The Barrel Jumpers!

Riff’s and Crankees will be our food trucks, with greens menu options!
