Fall Festival at the West Broad Farmers Market

Join us Saturday, October 16 from 11 to 2 at West Broad Farmers Market and Garden for our annual Fall Festival! We’ve got all sorts of fun fall, harvest, and Halloween activities for all age groups! There’s truly something for everyone to enjoy.

We will also have plenty of fresh produce and artisan goods from local farmers and vendors (with double dollars offered on fresh produce items with SNAP/EBT), live music and performances in the garden, and the maypole dedication! We have plenty of picnic tables in the garden, so come grab lunch with a view! Cloth face coverings will be required to enter the market and social distancing measures will also be in place. It’s sure to be a fun day all around, so don’t miss out!

Our Back to School Celebration will be an in-person event, and we are taking a hiatus from the drive-thru market this week. The drive-thru will be back for pick-up the weekend of October 23.
We are still taking vendor applications for these events. Any artisans and crafters, bakers and culinary enthusiasts, or farmers interested in participating in the market can email Cameron Teeter, Director of Community Agriculture at cameron@athenslandtrust.org or call 706-765-4020.
