The first challenge of Fortnite season 5, week 8 that might cause you some trouble is one that requires you to destroy apples and tomato produce boxes at The Orchard Farmers Market. It’s not hard by any means, but you do need to know where to go. The area isn’t marked on the map like one of the bigger hubs. It’s also a little tricky since there are limited produce boxes, meaning that other players can destroy them before you do. If this happens, you’ll have to restart.
In this guide, we’ll show you everything you need to know about completing the challenge. Here’s how to destroy apples and tomato produce boxes at The Orchard Farmers Market in Fortnite.
Where to find apples and tomato produce boxes at The Orchard Farmers Market
The Orchard Farmers Market is located to the north of Colossal Coliseum and has a giant sign on top that reads “Farmers Market — Locally Grown, Always Fresh.” It has three main stands in front of it that all include various produce items like bananas and tomatoes. Ideally, you should make a beeline for this location as soon as you jump off the Battle Bus. From our experience, it wasn’t too terribly crowded here, despite the location being home to a new weekly challenge. In fact, we were the only ones who landed there when we tried it.
See the image of the map above for reference.
The challenge is worded in such a way that might make you think you need to destroy tomatoes and apples, but we completed it by only destroying tomatoes. It seems like it’s another case of a poorly-worded challenge — which isn’t uncommon in Fortnite. Head to the stand on the right side, and you’ll see four tomato boxes on the counter. You can destroy them with your pickaxe if you’d like.
There are also more tomatoes inside the Farmers Market, though we weren’t able to test to see if those count. If, for whatever reason, you arrive at the Farmers Market and there’s another player there, you can either do your best to eliminate them before they grab the tomatoes first or run inside the building to see if the boxes there will give you credit toward completing the challenge. If not, just retry in a new match.
If you’re struggling, we recommend coming with a team who can watch your back as you destroy the produce boxes. Remember, only apples or tomatoes will give you progress toward completing the challenge. After you’ve destroyed three, you’ll gain credit for completing the quest, along with 20,000 XP. Now, you’ll be ready to move onto the next farm-related challenge that sends you through a cornfield by Steel Farm.
