As fall arrives the Midtown Farmers Market season is nearing its end, so be sure to enjoy all the market has to offer in its final month for 2016. As we head into October there are only five remaining Saturday markets and four Tuesday markets left this season! The last Tuesday market is October 25th and the last Saturday market is October 29th.
