Ste. Anne Far­mer’s Mar­ket ce­le­bra­ting Hal­lo­ween Sa­tur­day

Fi­nal wee­kend for outdoor sea­son

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

The Ste. Anne Far­mer’s Mar­ket will conclude its 13th outdoor sea­son this wee­kend, but be­fore mo­ving eve­ry­thing to the in­door win­ter mar­ket, or­ga­ni­zers have plan­ned a host of Hal­lo­ween the­med events to take place Sa­tur­day.

Pat­ti Mur­phy, coor­di­na­tor for the lon­grun­ning far­mer’s mar­ket, says there will be an abun­dance of fall har­vest ve­ge­tables and gourds du­ring the Oct. 26 sale, as well as ma­ny ac­ti­vi­ties for kids in­clu­ding the following:

Cos­tumes and hot cho­co­late

All ghosts, witches, su­per he­roes and more are in­vi­ted to wear their Hal­lo­ween cos­tumes to Sa­tur­day’s mar­ket to re­ceive a ti­cket for a free hot cho­co­late. Par­ti­ci­pants must go to the Hal­lo­ween Head­quar­ters Tent to get their treat.

Pump­kin de­co­ra­ting contest

The mar­ket will sup­ply the pump­kins and craft sup­plies while chil­dren under 10-years-old can sup­ply the crea­ti­vi­ty du­ring a pump­kin de­co­ra­ting contest. Prizes for the fun­niest, sca­riest, pret­tiest and the most ori­gi­nal pump­kin will be awar­ded. Win­ners will re­ceive a goo­dy bag of mar­ket treats.

Sca­ven­ger Hunt

Not only will there be a food que­ry sca­ven­ger hunt – with clues pro­vi­ded – but par­ti­ci­pants who ar­rive dres­sed as their fa­vou­rite sleuth will re­ceive a bo­nus prize. Mur­phy says the hunt will chal­lenge par­ti­ci­pants to ans­wer 20 food ques­tions re­la­ted to the ven­dors. Win­ners who get all 20 ques­tions cor­rect will be awar­ded goo­dy bags.

The Ste. Anne Far­mer’s Mar­ket is si­tua­ted along the wa­ter in Sainte-Anne-de-Bel­le­vue, across from the town hall. The fi­nal outdoor mar­ket will be held Sa­tur­day, Oct. 26, from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. The mar­ket will move to its in­door win­ter lo­ca­tion, St. Georges Church, 23 Per­rault St., on Nov. 2. The in­door hours will be 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. each Sa­tur­day.


Saint-La­zare teen Ali­cia Mof­fet, win­ner of YTV’s The Next Star, was awar­ded a pen and a cer­ti­fi­cate from mayor Ro­bert Gri­mau­do du­ring Fri­day’s teen dance.
