The State Farmers Market in Raleigh will have some giant watermelons on display this week.
Watermelon Day is 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Thursday, at the market off Lake Wheeler Road in south Raleigh. The event includes the watermelon contest with a $1,000 prize for the first place winner; free watermelon slices; recipes; a visit from the N.C. watermelon queen; and lots of North Carolina grown watermelon for sale.
This is a fun opportunity to head over to the market and pick up some watermelon and all of the other great produce for sale.
