Join the Portland Farmers Market for our annual Great Pumpkin Event on the campus of Portland State University on Saturday, October 28.
Take part in a Pumpkin Carving Contest for kids and adults from 9 am to noon (or while supplies last), with prizes provided by the Market! Winners will be announced at 1:00 from the market music stage. Winners must be present to win.
The Children’s Costume Parade starts at noon at the Information Booth and winds around the north block of the market. All costumed kiddos receive a goody bag for dressing up!
As an added “treat” for Halloween, Dave’s Killer Bread will be at the Market, handing out samples of their delicious loaves!
Pumpkins for the contest are generously donated by Packer Orchards – stop by their booth at the Farmers Market or visit their beautiful farm in Hood River Valley for the Pumpkin Patch and Fall Festival
Can’t attend October 28? No problem! The Portland Farmers Market is hosting another pumpkin carving event on Oct 29 at the KING Market!
