SUMMIT, NJ - As part of its 20th Anniversary Season of events, the Summit Farmers Market -- located in Park & Shop Lot No. 2, at the corner of DeForest Avenue and Maple Street -- will host a Strawberry Festival June 7, from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.

The festival will feature fresh strawberry samples and complimentary recipe cards including Brownie Points Bakery’s Strawberry Shortcake and Summit Downtown’s Springtime Strawberry Fool. There will also be live entertainment by piano player David Gorsky. Farmers and purveyors will be bringing fresh strawberries to market and offering confections and other products highlighting the seasonal fruit for purchase.  

The strawberry celebration will be followed by a blueberry pie-making contest on July 12 at 11 a.m. Members of the public are invited to bring their best homemade blueberry pie to the market by 10:30 a.m. for judging, with a winner announced at 11 a.m. Once the judging is complete, members of the public will be invited to try the pies. The winner will receive a prize of “Fun Money” that can be used to purchase items at the Summit Farmers Market.

Events will be held monthly through the end of October, and recipes and more will be included in a Farmers Market cookbook that will be available in September.
