Farmers Market plans of end-of-season events

The Fair Haven Farmer's Market has planned several events for the end of summer and start of autumn seasons. The market is held in the Fair Haven Park on Fridays, 3-6 p.m., rain or shine, until early October:

•Sept. 4: Health and Wellness Day. Local businesses will be on hand to offer their services. Meet local dentists, physical therapists, gym owners, and others. Anyone businessowner under the category of health, wellness, and fitness is welcome to participate; e-mail Sherry12887@yahoo.com.

•Sept. 11: Apple Fest Day. Local apple growers will sell a variety of Vermont-grown apples. They also provide information about "u-pick" opportunities and locations to their orchards. Plan to scope out your fall apple picking before all the varieties are ripe.

•Sept 18: Karl and his chair caning. If you have a chair in need of a new seat cane, just bring it to the market and Karl will provide you with an estimate. He mends baskets and other cane items. You can also visit to watch and learn from Karl.

•Oct. 9: Meet representatives of a local sheep farm and marvel at a pile of giant pumpkins. (The pumpkin display will depend upon date of harvest.) Seasonal vendors are still active at the market in early October.

Lots of produce and goods for the whole family and then some.
