Apples fancy enough for royalty, grown for your family by Lanni Orchards.

IT’S BAAAAACK: APPLE FEST 2018!!   Calling all bakers (and anyone who has a good apple recipe)…
The Medford Farmers Market is hosting our annual Apple Fest next Thursday, October 11 and holding a contest for the tastiest Apple recipe!

The details:

* Send us an email by Wednesday (10/11) with your name and the name of your dish.
* Bring your completed masterpiece to the market on Thursday, October 11 by 5pm.

* Wait for the results!  Mayor Burke and a handful of local judges will taste the entries and present the top three winners! (Judges will cast their votes between 5-6pm)

There’s only two requirements – use apples in some way and make it delicious! 

If you cannot be there but would like to contribute a dish, please let us know and arrangements can be made to drop one off prior to the Market.

All are welcome and encouraged to join the contest.

Market goers will eat the remainders of the creations after the judges have had some.

Email us at medfordfarmersmarket@gmail.com
by WEDNESDAY (10/10) to secure your spot in the contest!!

In addition to the contest, we’ll have live music, a cooking demo, story hour, MFM meet up, and mulled Apple cider at the Market tent!

Hope to see you there!
