Weekly Farmer’s Mar­ket Wraps Up Sum­mer Run

The Oakdale Leader - - FRONT PAGE -

Wed­nes­day, Sept. 27 will fea­ture the fi­nal Farmer’s Mar­ket of the 2017 sea­son in down­town Oak­dale.

Taken over this year by new co­or­di­na­tor Glen Earl of Cap’n Coops ket­tle corn, the Wed­nes­day night mar­ket has been hosted since May 10. A few Wed­nes­days saw the mar­ket can­celed due to ex­treme heat as the re­gion recorded mul­ti­ple triple digit days this sum­mer.

The fi­nal mar­ket is sched­uled for this even­ing, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. along North Third Av­enue, be­tween E and F streets in Oak­dale. It fea­tures farm fresh pro­duce, hum­mus, ket­tle corn, food, hand­made items, jew­elry and more, some­times with lo­cal busi­nesses also host­ing booths at the event.

Pro­duce has changed dur­ing the sea­son, with early sum­mer crops now giv­ing way to the au­tumn fare. Tem­per­a­tures, how­ever, will still feel more like sum­mer for the mar­ket fi­nale, with highs ex­pected to reach into the low 90s on Wed­nes­day.
