WARSAW — The Kosciusko County Farmers and Artisans Market’s outdoor season is coming to an end on Oct. 20. The market is celebrating the end of a great season by having a Fall Festival. In addition to all the weekly vendors, the Fall Festival, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., will offer the community a day of free family fun.
Available activities will include mini pumpkin decorating, free apples for kids, a cake walk, apple cider, face painting and corn hole.
The market will also be having its first ever pie baking contest. All pies are to be homemade and will be judged on crust, filling, appearance and overall taste. Well-known community members will be judging the contest, including Warsaw Mayor Joseph Thallemer, KCH’S Joy Lohse and One Ten Craft Meatery’s owner Jason Brown. The pie contest will begin at 10 a.m. Following the judging of the pies, the remainder of the pies will be sliced and sold with the proceeds going to Combined Community Services’ food bank. The market supports healthy eating and wanted to give back to the community through food, so the local food bank is a great fit. The market will also be collecting non-perishable food donations for the food bank that day as well.
In addition to these fun activities, local singer Sam Schmidt will be performing his awesome music. This is bound to be a fun day for families to enjoy. Be sure to come on out.
