On Saturday October 29th, the Oak Park Farmer’s market will host the “Harvest Festival”,  a Halloween-themed event. It will take place from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. This event is in partnership with the Neighborworks Homeownership Center.

Oak Park Farmers Market is a place where many diverse groups of local farmers come to vend their fresh fruits and vegetables and more, to the food desert within Oak Park. The market also provides a variety of interactive activities each week including live music from local bands and activities for children.

The Oak Park Farmer’s Market is located at McClatchy Park. This event will have many fun activities for children such as a scavenger hunt, zombie tag, and boo toss. They will also have many fun and creative artistic activities such as apple pop making, cider making, face painting, and pumpkin painting and even  a raffle with giveaways. Make sure to wear a good costume because they also will have a costume contest.

“Yeah, I’ll definitely be heading out to this Harvest Festival and taking my kids to go have fun,” said Esperanza Mercado when asked if she will go to this event. “It definitely seems like something enjoyable for me and my kids.”
