Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Halloween fun this weekend in Farmington and Ann Arbor, Michigan

Halloween Fun can be found all weekend, in and around Michigan.  First at the Farmington Farmers and Artisan Market on Saturday, located on Grand River between Farmington Rd and Grove St.  The market is open from 9 am till 2 pm.  Starting at 10 there will be face painting, decorate a pumpkin.  At 11 am there will be gourd tossing!  Music will be Larry Arbour and cider will be from the RB Miller Farm.  Great day to spend with family, have some fun, while shopping with your local farmer and artisan.  Start or continue your holiday shopping with some wonderful hand made goodies you will find at the market. 

Then on Sunday The Sunday Artisan Market in Ann Arbor, located in the Kerrytown Area, will also have some Halloween Fun.  Come down and decorate a pumpkin, scavenger hunt, a custom parade with trick and treating.  Great time to meet the artist and their work.  Bring your Christmas listing and get some ideas, or start your shopping.  

Both areas will be a lot of fun, plus you are supporting your local artist, and farmers. See you this weekend at one of the markets.

Please note Farmington Farmer and Artisan Market will be open till the Saturday before Thanksgiving.  The Sunday Artisan Market is open till the Sunday before Christmas.  Both are outside, so dress warm and enjoy the day.

I saw this post before and had trouble leaving a comment. I wanted to know if you are at the Farmington artists market? I haven't been to this farmers mkt. in a few years. I usually go to the Oakland county one.
