It’s time to trick or treat and the farmers markets are getting in on the action. Several of the markets this weekend (Saturday, 10/31) are celebrating Halloween with costume contests and carnivals. Grab your costume and head to the market.
The Downtown Austin Farmers Market is having a costume contest for children of all ages from 10 am to 11 am at the big blue Information tent at the Market this Saturday to show off for the judges. The best overall costume will win an Austin Farmers’ Market shopping bag chock full of market goodies! The bag will be awarded at 11 am.
Reminder: The Downtown market has returned to their non-summer hours. The Saturday market is now 9 am – 1 pm.
In South Austin, several vendors at Sunset Valley Farmers Market are celebrating Halloween with treats. If Fido or Fifi is jonesing to dress up, Happy Tails is offering treats for your pets sporting a costume.
Or, maybe you need help getting your “zombie” on. Myka Natural Cosmetics can “Zombify” (Zombie makeup) you for $20.00. That seems better than some of the alternatives I can think of for becoming a zombie.
Up North, Brushy Creek Farmers Market is having a carnival with the community center. Bring your children out for fun and games. They are having a costume contest (for people & pets), as well as face painting, crafts, games, palm reading.
