All good things must come to an end, and with winter approaching, the Birmingham Farmers Market will celebrate the conclusion of its 15th season on Sunday, October 29, from 9 a.m – 2 p.m.
“Sundays in public parking lot 6 have been so much fun with our wonderful vendors and members of the community,” said market manager Ellen Yerks. “We’re sad to see our 15th season come to an end but we’ll have a lot of fun saying goodbye.”
As the harvest season comes to its glorious end, so too does the Birmingham Farmers Market, which proudly features exclusively Michigan-grown produce and is subject to Michigan growing patterns. October always brings a bountiful selection of fall produce, in addition to fall-themed home accessories, floral arrangements, gourds and pumpkins of all shapes and sizes. Shoppers will also enjoy baked goods, freshly prepared foods, donuts, apple cider, eggs, syrup, jams and jellies, fresh meat, fish, poultry, soaps, candles and dog treats.
Attendees at the end of season celebration will enjoy corn shelling, live music and pumpkin carving demonstrations throughout the day, and children are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes. They will collect special treats from vendors. A pumpkin craft will be available at the Kids Zone, hosted by Birmingham Youth Assistance.
