Celebrate the arrival of fall season and this abundant time in the Pacific NW! While we have many beautiful fruits and vegetables at the market, this event celebrates all the strange, funny, and inglorious shaped produce that grows here too!

Modeled after France's "Fruits et legumes moches" (Ugly fruits and vegetables) movement to reduce food waste, we are highlighting those veggies that might not otherwise fit in. 

Enter your strange and unconventional shaped produce into the "Beauty Pageant". Awards will be given for Best Neighborhood Gardner Entry and Best Market Farmer Entry. Bring your "pageant contestants" to market by 5pm when the voting will begin! 

Join us on October 1st at 5pm to vote for your favorite funny fruit as our pageant winner!
