OSU-OKC Farmers Market to host inaugural Fall Festival
The Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City Farmers Market will celebrate the fall harvest this month by hosting its inaugural Fall Festival.
The family-friendly event is set for 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27 at the Farmers Market pavilion, 400 N Portland Ave.
The festival will include live music, food trucks, craft vendors and a face-painting booth and scavenger hunt for children. Bakers can take part in a pumpkin-pie baking contest and all attendees can enter for a chance to win a Thanksgiving basket featuring an organic turkey.
Pre-registration for the pie-baking content is at 10:15 a.m., with the contest beginning at 10:30 a.m.
The event will also include several demonstrations by representatives from Water4, an international safe-water nonprofit headquartered in Oklahoma City. Representatives will be on hand from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. to teach attendees about the importance of safe water access throughout the world and what Water4 is doing to end the water crisis.
In addition, the normal weekly Farmers Market will be taking place, with a variety of locally grown produce and hand-made goods for sale.
Parking and admission for the market and the Fall Festival are free. For more information about the OSU-OKC Farmers Market, go to www.osuokc.edu/farmersmarket. The market is open for regular winter hours from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday.
