PCC Natural Markets Seafair Milk Carton Derby

Green Lake Park July 12, 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

PCC is delighted to sponsor this year’s Milk Carton Derby, one of the most exciting events at Green Lake! Celebrate our new PCC local, organic milk by cheering on our dueling Greenlake PCC locations or by building your own boat.

We’ve created a special prize for the boat with the best “PCC Fruit Cup” theme. Design your entry to showcase your favorite fruits or vegetables, and we’ll choose three winners for $25, $50 or $100 PCC gift cards (up to four cards per winning team).

Not sure whether it should be a rhubarb canoe or a fruit salad sloop? Choose whatever floats your boat! For complete information on how to register to build your own boat or to find racing schedules, visit
