The High Point Farmers Market will finish up its regular 2022 season on Saturday, Oct. 29, when the final full-scale market will run from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the High Point Public Library.
While that will be the last of the regular markets for the year, there will be three small pop-up food markets on the first and third Saturdays in November and December, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
On Saturday, Nov. 5, Saturday, Nov. 19 and Saturday, Dec. 17, only plants, produce, baked goods, fish, chicken, beef and pork will be on sale.
The final regular Farmer’s Market on Oct. 29 will also be a Halloween celebration with a costume parade for children and dogs. Live music will be provided by Simple Covers.
The costume parade will kick off at 10 a.m., and many of the vendors at the market will have candy at their booths for the kids.
Also, the Friends of the Library group will hold a raffle for a gift basket.
In addition, the final regular market of the year is being used to celebrate Bethany Medical – the Farmer’s Market’s 2022 sponsor. According to High Point officials, Bethany Medical did a great deal to support the market this year. Among other things, Bethany funded the market’s popular “Double the Bucks” program, which doubles the buying power for SNAP customers purchasing fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, eggs and baked goods at the popular market.
At the October 29 market, staff from Bethany Medical will be there sharing copies of Dr. Lenny Peters’ book, “Barefoot to Benefactor: My Life Story of Faith and Courage.” Peters is the CEO and founder of Bethany Medical and the Lenny Peters Foundation.
On Dec. 3, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., there will be a special holiday market with food, plants, craft vendors and the Hope City food truck. Live music will be provided by Evan Blackerby.
The High Point Farmers Market offers the Double the Bucks program for EBT customers and also accepts Guilford County Community Care Network orange cards.
