Harvest Festival at the Farmers Market

Extraordinary pumpkins and other squash at the Happy Valley booth.

Fresh Figs

The Umpqua Valley Farmers Market will hold their annual Harvest Festival this Saturday, October 3 from 9:00 to 1:00 and you won't want to miss it. This is the place to buy your one-of-a-kind pumpkin for Halloween. There will be music, prizes and fresh, local produce at its peak.

Along with a wide array of squash, you'll find perfectly ripe melons at the Happy Valley booth and fresh figs. And the folks at Sterken Farm have a great selection of crisp juicy apples you can't buy at the store.

Bring the kids and enjoy the local fall harvest in all its glory.

The music was great, but the price on the figs was a little scarey. I bought quince instead. I now have 6 half-pints of quince perserve to go with buffalo and venison this winter. Still stalking affordable figs for jam.

Hi Jennifer - Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for your comment. Your flowerpot cloche is brilliant. I share your love of the farmers market and will be very sorry to see the season end.

Its always great to meet another Pacific Northwest blogger. There are many of us here in Oregon and Washington. Hope you stop by again soon.

Hi Evalyn. Sterken Farm is the only place I know of that has u-pick figs. Their u-pick price is usually about half of what their market price is. You can reach Christine at 260-7755 to check availability.
