Mark your calendars and get those garden plots ready! The Wytheville Farmers Market is pleased to announce our upcoming Pumpkin Day to be held on Saturday, September 21st, 2019!
We will be having a contest to see who can grow the heaviest pumpkin. A scale will be on hand at the event to weigh all pumpkins. The grower of the heaviest pumpkin will receive a trophy and a WFM Gift Certificate! Additionally, a WFM Gift Certificate will be awarded to the market patron who most accurately guesses the weight of the winning pumpkin! Full contest rules are below.
