1st Annual Marczyk Neighborhood Fair

1’st Annual Marczyk Neighborhood Fair
“Your World Class Neighborhood Market”

Denver, CO – Marczyk’s on the ‘Fax, at the corner of Colfax and Fairfax, is holding a Neighborhood Fair complete with a canning demo, pumpkin carving contest, jam and jelly competition, and pie competition. First second and third place ribbons for the winners! In addition, there will be tastings of Marczyk’s fall prepared food menu, neighborhood vendors, and cider donuts for sale. “The neighborhoods surrounding the Colfax store are quite different from the 17th Avenue store, even though they are only a few miles away from each other,” explains store manager Suzanne Waldmann. “We have lots of families here, and they have space for veggie gardens. People are getting back to the basics with canning their tomatoes, making jam, and even raising chickens in the city. So here’s their chance to win a blue ribbon!”

When: Saturday, Oct 27, 11am-4pm.
Where: 5100 E. Colfax Avenue
11:00am-noon: Kids pumpkin carving. Bring your own tools and pumpkins, or buy a pumpkin from us. The winning carvers will have their pumpkins displayed at our store, and receive a $5 gift card.

1:00pm-2:00pm: Canning contest and judging. Three categories: Jam, Jelly, and pickled vegetables. What’s the difference between jam and jelly? “The difference between them comes in the form that the fruit takes. In jelly, the fruit comes in the form of fruit juice. In jam, the fruit comes in the form of fruit pulp or crushed fruit (and is less stiff than jelly as a result).” 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place ribbons for the winners!
