Harvest Festival

This Friday is our last market of the season.  It’s been a great year and we’re celebrating with a Harvest Festival! As a thank you to our great community and the support you’ve shown the Farmers Market there will be free cookies and apple cider for the first 100 customers.  Kids can decorate a pumpkin to take home and join in the market scavenger hunt.  Adults can try for an El Elote Loco T-shirt in our corn on the cob eating contest!  And we need your help in choosing the best jack-o-lantern in our vendor pumpkin carving contest.  We’ll have live music so bring the family and come join the festivities!

Fresh at the Market Today

It’s pumpkin time at the Farmers Market.  Come and pick your perfect pumpkin for Halloween or pumpkin pies, or pick up some of those cute little baby pumpkins for decorating.  Other great fall produce at the market includes winter squash, some yummy varieties of apples including Honeycrisp and Gala and more, peaches, peppers, potatoes, onions, tomatoes, and those great local strawberries are still going strong.

Grab your umbrella and come and visit us at the market tonight!

Closing Time – Revisited

We’re staying open until 8:00 this Friday and the next.  Last week we tried closing at 7:00 but it was just too early and we were having too much fun listening to some great live music.  We’ll bring out the lights and keep things going until our regular 8:00 closing time.  See you Friday!
