Fishers’ last farmers market of the summer season will be 8 a.m. to noon Sept. 30 at the Nickel Plate Amphitheatre, 6 Municipal Dr. It will feature everything fall related.

“It’s our annual fall harvest festival, a celebratory event that closes out the summer farmers market season,” Assistant Director of Public Relations Casey Cawthon said. “So produce, activities, everything is fall related. We are wrapping up the summer season before we take a month off before the winter market returns.”

Cawthon said there will be plenty of family-friendly activities, fall products, flavors and smells. Activities include pumpkin bowling, a farm tractor for kids to explore and sit on, hay barrels for climbing, a wooden farm wagon, face painting and airbrush tattoos, bobbing for apples and pumpkin tic tac toe.

Pumpkin bowling will be offered during the event.

“It is definitely going to be an event for the family to come out, enjoy something to eat and stay and play a while,” Cawthon said.

Live music by the band Blackberry Jam, a folk-like band, will be from 10 a.m. to noon. Some vendors also will offer child-friendly activities.

“The fall harvest festival is a tradition in Fishers, and we invite residents of all ages to come shop local and support Indiana-grown farmers while celebrating the arrival of autumn,” Cawthon said.
