Market Monster (S)mash!

This week at PRFM…

Halloween Parade & Farm Burger
At the October 15 Mash-up, Peachtree Road Farmers Market raised $5,877 of our $6,000 fundraising goal. To raise the remaining funds the PRFM needs to pay yearly city fees, Farm Burger Buckhead will sell market-inspired sliders this Saturday at the Market’s third annual Halloween Parade and Costume Contest! A portion of the proceeds will go to support PRFM, so don’t miss this fun-fest (details below).

The parade and costume contest is open to kids of all ages (and dogs, too!) and steps off at 11:00 a.m. at the info tent. The parade will be led by super-hero Captain Planet and costume prizes will be awarded to pets and people (doggie prizes from Taj-Ma Hound and people prizes from Cookie Studio); doggie categories are Best Duet (for a dog & its person), Most Creative, and Most Farmers Market Inspired; people categories are Most Green/Eco-Friendly, Most Farmers Market Inspired, and “I'm too young to protest” (best costumed baby under 18 months).

Kids Learning Patch Activity
All Saturday Morning
Before or after the parade, be sure to stop by the Kids Learning Patch tent so the kids can learn all about the lifecycle of a pumpkin and paint their own fall gourd to enjoy! The Kids Learning Patch series is sponsored by The Captain Planet Foundation.
