If you think the Kershaw County Farmers Market is drawing to an end just because the tomatoes, squash and eggplants are dwindling, think again. Local farmers are busy in their fields to make room for fall vegetables. Cole crops like broccoli, cabbage and kale are coming soon.

To celebrate the end of the season harvest the Kershaw County Farmers Market will be having a fall festival Oct. 30. There will be straw bales, scarecrows, pumpkins and activities for youngsters. There will also be bobbing for farm fresh apples, potato stenciling and other fall harvest activities.

Farm Day is set for Nov. 20, helping to kick off the Farm-City Week observance Nov. 20-27. Farmers market vendors and customers will celebrate farm life and teach children and adults about life on a farm and where food comes from. Farm Day will feature pony rides, farm animals to view, tractors to climb on, farm demonstrations, hot apple cider, live music and more.

The Kershaw County Farmers Market will be open from 8 a.m. to noon each Saturday through Dec. 11, the day of the Kershaw County Christmas Parade. Parade-goers are encouraged to stop by the market before or after the parade for live music, fresh holiday wreaths, holiday crafts and fresh fall greens, meat, eggs and dairy from local farmers.
