Watermelon was in the spotlight at the Nashville Farmers' Market's Watermelon Throwdown.

The event Saturday was about all things watermelon.

From watermelon tasting to a watermelon eating contest and, of course, the watermelon seed spitting contest.

Eating watermelon on a hot summer day was a perfect combination for many people.

Saturday's event also included cooking demonstrations using, of course, watermelon as a main ingredient.
