The bounty of a new season will be ushered in at the corporate farmers market on Saturday on fall harvest day.
Although fall officially begins on September 22, the community celebration will include a full range of activities that promise fun for everyone.
“We are looking forward to the very first fall harvest day at the market,” said Kay Kirkland, Special Events Coordinator for the City of Enterprise. “The September 25 event, which was traditionally referred to as ‘Peanut Day,’ was expanded a bit to include celebration of all fall crops including field corn, potatoes, greens. , squash and cotton. “
Producers at the market expect to have a wide variety of seasonal goodies available, including boiled peanuts, fall squash, tomatoes, greens, ornamental pumpkins, rutabagas, potatoes and all kinds of baked goods, jellies, jams, salsas, local honey and even maple syrup.
Craftsmen will also be installed with wooden products, soaps, fresh flowers, ornamental pumpkins, vegetable gardens, jewelry, folded books, resin art, embroideries and polymer clay arts.
In addition to shopping, visitors to the market will have the opportunity to win a delicious cake, other type of treat or non-food prize donated by local businesses as part of the “Wall Harvest Treat Walk”. The Treats and Prizes March, just like the traditional festival cake marches, will run from 8:30 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. until all the prizes are gone.
