Gadzukes! Zucchini Celebration and Recipe Contest at Lexington Farmers Market

  • Lexington Farmers Market NC 129 South Railroad Street Lexington, NC, 27292 United States (map)

Davidson County Master Gardeners will help children make their own works of art by using veggie slices as ink stamps. Kids can also carve big zucchinis into funny faces.


Entries must be homemade and use fresh zucchinis or zucchini blossoms as a main ingredient, in either a SWEET (eg muffins, cakes and cookies) or SAVORY (eg appetizer, entree or side dish) recipe.

Prepared dishes should be brought to the Farmer’s Market no later than 10:00 am on July 7, 2018. Look for the Master Gardeners near the center of the Market. Dishes should be large enough for at least 6 taste samples. Additional samples will be shared with Market patrons. Typed or handwritten recipes should be brought with the entry and you can elect to share your recipe on the Lexington Farmers Market website. Winners will be determined by a panel of 3 judges. First place in each category will be awarded $25 cash and a Lexington Farmer’s Market t-shirt. Second place winners will receive $15 cash and a t-shirt. Questions? Ask in the event comments!
