Rooted Here Photo Contest! What are you making with your Market order? Is it food, is it art, or is it both?
We’d love to see what you create and give you a chance to win a market gift certificate.
Please submit your picture and a brief explanation (if needed) to the Rooted Here Board between now and October 11th. We’ll display your picture on our website. After all submissions have been collected, we’ll let you vote on your favorites. The winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to the South Cumberland Farmer’s Market.
