Farmers’ Market enters final month for season

There is only a month to go in the Farmers’ Market season.

The event will continue from 8 a.m. to noon every Saturday through the end of October at Warren’s Midtown parking lot.

With a new season comes new products. Seasonal vendors join the 24 regulars and provide apples, pumpkins, squash, eggplant and more.

Apples, and apple products, are particularly abundant, according to Farmers’ Market Coordinator Josie Gerardi.

The fall offerings include many flowers – cut, bouquets, and mums and gladiolus in particular.

The market is a good place to find the right gourd or pumpkin for display.

For those looking for canned goods, either as part of a holiday gift basket or for loading up the pantry, Gerardi said the market is the right destination.

Baked goods are also popular.

There is a bi-weekly drawing for a $25 market gift certificate. So far, there have been 11 winners.

Also on a bi-weekly basis, Penn State Master Gardeners make informational presentations and are available to answer questions.

“There are only four more Saturdays” before the end of the season, Gerardi said.
