Plenty of patrons came out the Hillcrest Farmers Market last Sunday to get their jack-o-lanterns ready for Halloween and to take advantage of the availability of new seasonal veggies that are appearing as the fall and winter months are approaching.

Rey River Farms displayed their pumpkins at the information booth for market-goers to
purchase and then carve for free. Many took advantage of the carving tools provided and the promise of
provided clean-up to carve some elaborate jack-o-lanterns. While some templates were used many pumpkin-artists decided to use their imaginations and free-hand their carvings. There was plenty
of fun and mess to go around and for a few it was their first pumpkin carving experience.

Fall and winter vegetables are making their way into the stalls at the Hillcrest Farmers Market. Suzie's Farm will be offering broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, a variety of beans, kale, and beets. Along with many of the same veggies, J.R. Organics also has winter squash, okra, ornamental pumpkins, tomatoes, black-eyed peas, and a variety of root vegetables on display.

With produce changing often, be sure to visit all of the Hillcrest Farmers Market vendors to get the most this season has to offer!
