Fall Harvest Celebrations Planned at the Farmers Markets

Bring the whole family to our fall harvest celebration events at select farmers market locations! Fall marks one of the most abundant times of the year at the farmers market with plenty of summer crops like tomatoes, peppers and peaches still abundant, and fall favorites like pumpkins and apples rolling into season. Kids are invited to paint pumpkins, play fall harvest bingo and show off their costumes. In celebration of the bountiful fall season, we will also be hosting healthy cooking demonstrations by local chefs.

This gives customers the unique opportunity to ask farmers directly about their growing methods, animal welfare practices and more!
