This Thursday, October 13, is the last Produce in the Park farmers market of the season. Load up on fall produce and other local foods and fall crafts, and don’t miss trick-or-treating. Vendors
and visiting organizations will be handing out treats to both kids and adults. Costumes are optional but encouraged, and musicians, vendors, and representative from visiting organizations are likely to be seen
wearing something festive. October sponsor the Atlantic Elks Lodge will be offering free cupcake decorating for kids.
This week at the market shoppers can expect to find a variety of squashes, potatoes, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, green onions, red onions, beets, watermelon, garlic, parsley, and possibly carrots, bok
choi, tomatoes, peppers, and green beans. That’s a lot of local produce and a reminder that the growing season in Iowa extends well into fall. In addition to produce, there will be lots of local meat, honey,
granola, and baked goods. A new product this week is popcorn on the cob from Corn 4 a Cause. Popcorn can be popped right off the cob in the microwave. Expect lots of seasonal crafts at the last market in the park, including fall candles and wax melts, fall bath and body products, and spooky jewelry. This week’s food truck is Zemog’s Cocina.
