Cary, N.C. – Enjoy an old-fashioned pig pickin’, live music, kids’ entertainment and raffle prizes at the Pig Pickin’ Palooza Fundraiser on Sat., Sept. 10, 11 am-2 pm, at the Western Wake Farmers’ Market.

Bring a blanket or a chair and your friends and family for the fun and foods donated by market farmers and vendors, including hormone-free BBQ pork sandwiches from Coon Rock Farm and featuring BBQ sauce from local company Outta the Park, along with lamb from Little River Ranch, a vegetarian option from Martin’s Curry Rice, Redbud ripe tomatoes, and dessert from Annelore’s German Bakery. Muddy Dog Roasting Co. will provide hush puppies, and sweet tea to wet your whistle. Menu updates will be available at the market’s website.

Tickets are for sale at the market on Tuesdays, 3:30-6:30 pm and Saturdays 8 am-12 pm. Tickets are $10; kids’ plate: $5. Your ticket automatically enters you into the raffle to win farmers’ market goodies, and additional raffle tickets will be available for sale.

“Pig Pickin Palooza is what this market is all about–the community coming together for a great day of local food from farmers’ markets and artisans.” says Juliann Zoetmulder, President of the WWFM. “This market has a great sense of community, and this is a really fun way for all of us to come together and enjoy fantastic local food. And to help to support the market. “

Zoetmulder suggests bringing a cooler for market shopping, and then staying for the food, music, door prizes and fun.
