Pumpkin Carving Contest

How does it work?
  • Bring your most creatively carved pumpkin to the market on Saturday Oct. 28th, between 9:30-10:30 a.m., and our market guests will vote for their favourite!
  • The winner will be announced at 1:00 p.m. – please come to claim your prize, and take home your pumpkin! Any pumpkins left after 2:00 p.m. will be fed to our compost. If the winner cannot attend the announcement, we will contact you to pick up your prize at a future market date!


The winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to the market – this can be used at any vendor, including the UBC Farm!
