Well here we are! One week left of good ol’ market fun before our first annual harvest festival on October 25! What better way to kick off the excitement this week than with hot apple cider and roasted chestnuts from Sakshi’s Old Fashioned Roasted Nuts! Who needs dinner after that? Parents, bring the kids down for a fun apple print activity at 4:30pm, and stick around for children’s story time with the Oakley Library at 5pm. Enjoy music this week from Tristan Buie-Collard.
Speaking of the harvest festival, remember to bring the kids and dogs down for our kid and pet costume contests! Our great prizes include handmade kaleidescopes, a $20 gift certificate to Biltmore Village’s toy store Once Upon A Time, and a $50 handmade leather dog collar crafted from the talented hands of our roasted nut vendor, Sakshi Gantenbein. And your generous donations for a delicious dinner enter you in our raffle for three gift baskets full of hand crafted goodness from our many vendors, each at a value of over $40! We are so excited to celebrate our first season with you, so stay tuned all week on Facebook, our website and with our newsletter for more info on all the fun that awaits. Take in the autumn flavors this week with a variety of greens and root veggies like beets, carrots, turnips and radishes. Roasted veggies are abound with broccoli, potatoes, garlic, shiitake mushrooms, and winter squashes. Get to bakin’ with fall apples and remember to get your Jack O’ Lanterns too. You can still find sweet summer flavors with okra, squashes, eggplants, bush beans and peppers.
See you at the market!!
