4MRMarket Report: "October 24th Harvest Party" Edition


Next Sunday morning, October 24th, from 8am to 1pm, the Four Mile Run Farmers & Artisans Market plays host to the 4MR Harvest Market with FREE eco-friendly, re-usable trick-or-treat bags for the first 30 kids in costume!

The 4MR Harvest Market will feature live performances and vendors (some even in costume) with cider (while supplies last) and the usual fresh seasonal vegetables, meat, prepared foods and crafts.

A special treat will be a fresh re-telling of a familiar story: Hansel and Gretel is about a lot more than a Gingerbread House.

Join us at 4MRMarket on Sunday, Oct 24th as award winning actress, Gale Nemec performs this classic Fairy Tale by the Brothers Grimm. Three shows: 9:00am, 10:30am and at noon.

(Donations are welcome. A portion of the proceeds will go to support the efforts of the Entertainment and Education Foundation and “The Bea & The Bug Extravaganza for Children!”)

Anyone on hand at the close of the market is invited to walk, ride or run down with us to the 14th Annual Del Ray Halloween Parade starting at 2pm.
