Fresh strawberries will be in abundance for this Sunday’s much anticipated EPB Strawberry Festival on June 3rd. Folks have been lining up since opening day to get their fill of fresh strawberries. Several farms will ensure there will be strawberries galore: Flattop Mountain Farms, Hazelrig Farms, Watsonia Farms and Red Clay Farms. Patrons can enjoy more fresh produce, like peaches, appearing as well.
It’s also a day for other food vendors and artists to join in the “berry” theme and show off new, creative products. Miller’s Lemonade always features their strawberry version, Daylillies will offer a fresh strawberry salsa, there’s a berry-blend granola from Nokes Granola, and Simply Southern Bakery will have strawberry breads and baked goods. Look for creative non-food items such as a “Berry Special Perfume” by Good Fortune Soaps, and more.
The day spotlights Chattanooga Market Sponsor EPB Fiber Optics. Market patrons can pick up a blue reusable shopping bag at the EPB booth every Sunday, making shopping easier.
