It sounds like it will be a fun week to go to the farmers market at New Harvest Park!
Don your sombrero and join the fiesta! The New Harvest Park Farmers Market will have a Cinco de Mayo celebration highlighting produce and products with a Mexican flair on Thursday, May 5 from 3 until 6 p.m.
Several styles of Sherie’s Garden Salsa will be available for sampling, and a drawing will be held to give away a basket of chips and salsa. V.G.’s Bakery will feature Jalapeño cornbread, and peppers and pepper jelly will be available from the vendors. Other seasonal favorites—strawberries, broccoli, greens, sprouts, and onions will be on hand, along with local meats, dairy products, and Cruze Dairy’s ice cream. Snow Creek Home will have a candle sale as well.
A free children’s activity, making maracas out of recycled drink bottles, and music by 13 year-old acoustic guitarist Sojourner McClure will keep everyone busy and entertained.
Knox County’s New Harvest Park is located just past the Target on Washington Pike and features a splash pad, playground, and a quarter mile walking trail.
The splash pad is now open from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.
