The end of the Birmingham Farmers Market season is here, and more than 70 local vendors are expected to be out to help make the End-of-Season Celebration starting at 9 a.m. Sunday.
Highlights of activities include:
- A kids pumpkin craft table
- Pumpkin carving demostrations all day
- Trick-or-treating for children, who are encouraged to be in costume
- Live music
Laurie Tennent, of Birmingham's Laurie Tennent Studio, will take poloroids of costumed children for a small fee to benefit charity, and visitors can enter to win tickets to Elf-The Musical at the Detroit Opera House in December. Look for the entry box at the information tent all day long.
"We've enjoyed a very successful 11th season," said Lori Rondello, spokeswoman for Birmingham's Principal Shopping District. "Our market continues to maintain excellent farmers and unique specialty vendors with prepared foods and drinks, hand-crafted items."
Rondello also said a new attendance record was set when more than 4,600 people visited the annual Corn Festival on Aug. 11.
The Farmers Market ran from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. every Sunday since the summer in the municipal parking lot on North Old Woodward Avenue. For more information, visit birminghamfarmersmarket.org.
