Special fall-themed activities will add to the fun as the season comes to a close. Market patrons will enjoy corn shelling, face painting, live music and pumpkin carving demonstrations throughout the day. The community is invited to stop by and enjoy the delicious smells and samples at the market. Food trucks will feature hot dogs and travel-burgers. Children are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes and collect special treats from the farmers. Plus, children will enjoy a special pumpkin craft at the Kids Zone, hosted by Birmingham Youth Assistance.
