“Showcasing the amazing variety of what’s available during the fall harvest season, October is a wonderful time to visit the year-round Midtown Farmers Market to sample and savor the bounty of our region,” said Emily Baime Michaels, Executive Director of the Midtown Association. “Plus, the Market kicks off a series of other popular Midtown activities on October 28 that include trick-or-treating at participating businesses in the district and the crowd-favorite Midtown Halloween Festival & Pooch Parade, along with many others.”
