Published: Wednesday, July 2, 2014 11:32 a.m. CST

GREENFIELD — During Greenfield Farmers’ Market July 10, Adair County Extension will be hosting a supper to be served 5 to 7 p.m. (or until food is gone) featuring hamburgers and pork burgers grilled by Adair County Cattlemen and Adair County Pork Producers, along with baked beans, watermelon, bars and drink. Free-will donations will be accepted to support the Adair County 4-H program. The 4-H program reaches more than 400 Adair County youths annually through 4-H community clubs, Clover Kids and out-of-school enrichment programs, including summer day camps.

Face painting, 4-H tattoos, duck pond and Plinko will also be available from 5 to 7 p.m. The audience may get a glimpse of some of the talent that will be appearing as part of the county fair Share the Fun program. A number of members will perform their talent beginning at 6 p.m. The Adair County 4-H Youth Council pie-in-the-face fundraiser contestants will also be introduced.

Adair County Fair Queen candidates will be introduced to the public at the farmers’ market. Candidates are set to take the stage at 7 p.m. The introduction of the candidates and on-stage interviews will cap off a night of pre-fair fun and food. The actual crowning of the Adair County Fair Queen will be the opening night of the fair 8 p.m. July 16 in the fairgrounds courtyard.

Several items will be available at the Extension office during the July 10 farmers’ market. 4-H families who pre-ordered county fair 4-H shirts may pick these up. 4-H’ers wishing to enter the new cupcake decorating challenge may register and pick up their cupcake boxes and information.

4-H exhibitor’s fair passes must be picked up at the Extension by July 15. This year, 4-H’ers will need their fair pass for admission to the fairgrounds beginning July 16. To help with this process, Extension staff will have passes available for pick-up during the farmers’ market. The general public may also purchase five-day fair passes that evening.
