Last Farmers Market Day, 2009

Saturday was the last day of the local Farmers Market.

Some of us had been feeling a little shut-in, so we decided to jump in the car and get out there.

Not much produce at this time of year, but there were lots of lovely pumpkins. Besides the great huge orange jack-o-lantern pumpkins, there were also these fancy styles; and stands selling handcrafts, pottery, local honey and beeswax, homebaked pies and breads, jams, jellies and salsas, and much more.

Since it was the last day of the season, the Market had some special activities for children.

Pony rides, unusual animals, a Fall crafting station, a chalk-art storyteller, and lots of fun games.

The Gater was feeling much better, having been able to get out for a while. Although it was very cold and muddy! We arrived as the market opened, so it was still early and very chilly.

Bert loved this game. I think he always wanted a chance to throw pumpkins.

Sad that the markets have come to an end already. But there are always a lot of fun things to do in Fall, anyway.
