The Transylvania Farm-ers' Market's annual Farm Fair is coming up on Saturday, Sept. 2, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. One of the star attractions is the annual Jam Contest.

Local residents are encouraged to enter their best jam at no cost. Drop off your jam by 9 a.m. and compete against market vendors and other public participants for prizes. Fairgoers will have the opportunity to sample each jam and vote for their favorite, with the winners announced around 11:30 a.m.

An event that celebrates our local farmers and producers, Farm Fair will include a wide variety of vendor and educational booths, contests, events for kids, and is free to the public. It will be held at the Transylvania Farmers' Market at the corner of Johnson and Jordan streets, just off East Main Street behind Comporium.

Some of the morning's events include watermelon seed spittin', an egg and spoon race, hot breakfast, free face painting, a puppet show, and a scavenger hunt for kids, tomato tasting, cornhole, live music by Crooked Pine, and more than 60 market vendors with a plethora of local produce and products.
