ICE CREAM SOCIAL AT CHATTANOOGA MARKET
We all scream for ice cream t hi s weekend, apparently.
Chattanooga Market is also hosting an ice-cream fundraiser. One of the market’s most popular summertime events, the Ice Cream Social is set for Sunday, June 10, at the market in First Tennessee Pavilion, 1826 Carter St. Market hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Admission is free, but a $6 ticket is required to receive sample scoops from participants Brusters, Clumpies Ice Cream, Milk & Honey, Mayfield Dairy Farms and The Ice Cream Show.
All proceeds from sales will benefit programs of the Chambliss Center for Children.
“Two awards will be given: one for best pure flavor and one for best flavor with inclusions,” says Katie Harbison, Chambliss Center vice president.
Each of the f ive icecream vendors will submit an ice cream into each category. People purchasing the ice- cream tickets can vote on their favorites in each category, she says.
Last summer’s Ice Cream Social netted $5,300 for the agency, says Harbison.
Market spokeswoman Melissa Siragusa says “summer produce is pouring in with peaches, strawberries, and tomatoes.” Summer vegetables coming into the market include squash, c u c u mb e r s , snap peas and more.
In addition to the fresh produce, marketgoers will find meats, cheeses, spices, fresh flowers and original crafts and art being sold by the market’s 200 vendors.
