Fall is here which means a lot of things, cooler weather, leaves changing color but most of all it is pumpkin season.
The Angelina County Farmer’s Market has brought their pumpkins out.
They have the mini pumpkins as well as the pies. Among the pumpkin-covered shelves you can find some for eating and some for decoration.
But that is not all, the farmers market also has pumpkins for carving jack-o’-lanterns.
Pumpkins seem to be the symbol for the season and the folks at the farmer’s market are ecstatic the season is finally here.
“I don’t know, it’s just kind of a magic in the air, and it’s cool, and everybody wants to be outside,” said Michael Kennerly, Angelina County Farmer’s Market Manager. We’re not seeing 95 and 100 degree days right now it’s just enjoyable being out. We have a lot of room out here at the farmer’s market if anyone wants to come out here and shop with us we’d love to have you.”
In addition to selling pumpkins, they are also in the process of decorating the market for Halloween and getting ready to give tours of the market for children.
“we’ve got school tours coming the second week of October and we’re getting ready for that,” said Kennerly. “We’re building a tunnel and it’ll be ready by the time the kids are ready to come.”
The tour will be for entertainment but also will be an educational journey about the various types of produce East Texas has to offer.
“we try to have fun with the kids with Halloween,” said Kennerly. “it’s also educational, we teach them what we grow and how we grow it.”
The Angelina County Farmer’s Market is located on Medford Drive in Lufkin.
