NAME OUR MASCOT THE KNITTED GOAT

Naming Contest

The knitted goat is the Market's new Mascot. It needs a name!

Last week, we started to collect suggestions for a name for the knitted goat, the Market's mascot. We received thirty names! We will continue to gather names, and later in the season, we will conduct a ballot to choose the winner. A prize will be awarded to the person who suggested the winning name. Stop by the information tent to get more info and stay tuned!
