Farmers market Fall Fest to start Saturday

Susan Du, City Editor

The Fall Fest, an annual farmers market event featuring autumn-themed produce, arts and crafts and pumpkin decorating, will take place Saturday.

Children are encouraged to attend in Halloween costumes. Attendees will also be able to contribute to mural paintings to be hung at the Robert Crown Center, 1701 Main St., according to a city news release. 

The last farmers market of the season is Nov. 3. The Fall Fest is scheduled for 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

Last winter, Friends of Evanston Markets constructed an indoor farmer’s market at the Ecology Center, 2024 McCormick Blvd. The indoor market will be renewed in 2012.
