POTSDAM The Potsdam Farmers Market, in cooperation with GardenShare, will host Pumpkin Fest from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 26 behind the municipal lot near Ives Park.
The event will include activities for children and healthy Halloween tips. All market visitors may guess the weight of a big pumpkin. The winning guesser receives a gift certificate to the winter market. The market will move indoors to Cheel Arena the week after the event.
The event also includes a 5k run, a booth with master gardeners, live music, wine tasting and a market of more than 30 producers.
The festival is the sixth and final in a series of special events planned for this year at the market to draw attention to locally produced goods.
