Sunday, July 1st Chattanooga Market kicks off week-long Independence day events with the annual Blueberry Festival. It’s all about red, white and blue with blueberry pie eating contests, live music and of course, fresh-picked blueberries.
The popular no-hands pie eating contests will be at both noon and 1pm, with a vendor contest at 3pm. The contest is open to all ages and sign-ups are the day of at the Market desk. Winners from each contest will receive a fresh baked blueberry pie from Culinard at Virginia College—the official baker of the pies for the contests.
Fresh produce this week will include squash, zucchini, onions, tomato, peaches, lettuce and more. Fresh pastas, cheeses, meats and jarred goods are always a staple.
