Visitors to the Enterprise Farmer’s Market saw a little more of a Southern summer staple during the market’s Watermelon Day on Saturday, June 29.

Not only did market-goers have the opportunity to purchase fresh fruit, vegetables and other items from market vendors, several watermelon-themed contests were held to offer some fun.

In the Biggest Watermelon contest, Dusty Watkins won with a 44-pound watermelon.

In the Seed Spitting contest, Judson Fowler had the farthest distance in the 7 years and under category, J.D. Kudrna had the farthest distance for ages 8-15 and Beth Gilber had the farthest distance for the 16 years and older.
