What. A. Season.
There were ups and downs but mostly I loved every minute of it. Together we celebrated successes and complained about how sweaty we were.
Looking back, it all happened in the blink of an eye.
My favorite market in Cuyahoga Valley National Park culminates in one final outdoor celebration before we move indoors for the winter.
And it’s not just any market: it’s Halloween at Howe Meadow!
Wear your spookiest or silliest costume, shop and trick or treat with the vendors in one last Howe Meadow horah this Saturday, October 26th.
PLUS the first 100 customers to trick or treat at the information booth will receive a $5 voucher to spend at Countryside Old Trail School Winter Farmers’ Market.
