There’ll also be cake and candy walks, sugar cookie decorating, apple painting, pumpkin painting and face painting as well as the chance to get free trick or treat bags as long as they last.

Photographs can be purchased on site and everyone is encouraged to sign a leaf to complete the Farmer Market Family Tree.

There will be free coffee, hot chocolate and water, and fresh baked oven fired pizzas and hot dogs will be available for sale. The event goes on until 1 p.m.
