Rev Up Your Creativity for Diablo Valley Farmers’ Market’s Zucchini Car Race: July 30


Edible East Bay‘s zucchini race car has already been disqualified, but we hope yours wins!

Do you have too much zucchini? Does someone at your house have too much time on their hands?

The Zucchini Car Race at Diablo Valley Farmers’ Market on Saturday, July 30, 2022, should take care of both problems.

Race details are being posted on the Diablo Valley Farmers’ Market website, so be sure to check there between now and race day for the nitty gritty, but as you design your race car, keep in mind the following rules:

  1. The zucchini car must not be wider than 6.5 inches (with wheels) and no longer than 16 inches.
  2. No weights or motorized devices.
  3. Zucchini must be farm fresh (from the farmers’ market or locally grown).
  4. The axle of the car must go through the zucchini.

Located at Shadelands Business Park, North Wiget Lane and Mitchell Drive, Walnut Creek, the market is open 9am to 1pm.
