It’s finally starting to feel like autumn, especially at the farmers’ market. Fall favorites such as pumpkins, squash, winter greens, and apples have taken center stage on our growers’ stands and are available in abundance.

However, September also signals the eventual winding down of the farmers’ market season. There are only six more Saturday markets left until our last day, which happens to be on Halloween. So, as we all enjoy the last month and a half of the farmers’ market season, we wanted to share with you some ideas on how to make the most of this time.

Reza Djalal is the market manager for the Adams County Farmers Market Association. If you have any questions about the ACFMA you can reach him at or visit our website,
