Then simply write down the number attached to the eagle on display in each store or get the merchant to sign off on the ad verifying your visit. When you’ve visited all the stores, turn the completed form in at the entry box at the farmer’s market Thursday, Sept. 8, or at Carey Candy Co. any time prior to Sept. 8.
