The Hudson Farmer's Market wraps up its 10th season on Oct. 8 with its Harvest Festival. This is the last chance to come to the Clocktower Green for the season and enjoy the bounty of early autumn in Ohio.

There will be a wide variety of produce available, including pumpkins, gourds, apples, pears, peppers, mums, and tomatoes. This is also a chance to stock up on the pasture-raised and hormone-free pork, chicken and beef as winter nears. There will be a variety of pumpkin-flavored baked goods and even pumpkin and sweet potato casserole pierogi from the Pierogi Lady.

People can enjoy small pumpkin crafts at the Hudson Montessori School Children's Tent and a coffee roasting demonstration at 10 a.m. at the main tent by Artisan Coffee Roasters of Akron. Artisan Coffee will show you how to turn green coffee beans into delicious roasted beans using equipment you probably already have in your home. Artisan will be selling green coffee beans for you to take home and roast yourself and pounds of already roasted beans to keep you warm as the mornings get cooler.

It's sure to be a great time and the last time to enjoy the market and beautiful downtown Hudson until the 2017 season.

The Hudson Farmers Market takes place every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The Hudson Farmers Market is a nonprofit born from a project of Leadership Hudson, a program sponsored by The Rotary Club of Hudson Clock Tower, and a collaboration between community leaders and civic-minded residents.
