The New Harvest Farmers’ Market will host their 9th annual Blueberry Festival on Thursday, June 27th, 2019 from 3PM-6PM at New Harvest Park with Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs ringing the opening bell.
This FREE, family-friendly event will feature a kids zone with blueberry-themed activities, Success with Blueberries in Your Garden presentation from the UT Extension Office, giveaways, and a wide variety of blueberry products including beverages, baked goods, blueberry plants, and more from the farmers’ market vendors!
“This has always been one of the market’s biggest events and it’s a favorite with the public,” said Paul White, senior director of the Knox County Parks and Recreation Department. “This year will be no exception. We’ll have locally grown products, including meats, fruits and vegetables, but the highlight, of course, will be the blueberries.”
Nourish Knoxville, who manages the farmers’ market, will be providing their SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as food stamps) doubling program, Double Up Food Bucks, which provides SNAP customers with up to $20 per day in matched tokens to spend on fresh produce at participating farmers’ markets. Funding for Double Up Food Bucks is provided by Truck2Table, Humana, and Three Rivers Market.
New Harvest Park is located at 4775 New Harvest Lane, Knoxville, TN 37918, just off Washington Pike. In addition to the festival and farmers’ market, the park boasts a large playground, splash pad, and miles of walking and hiking trails.
