The Seymour Area Farmers Market is wrapping up its 2016 season, but there is still time to pick up your fall harvest items.

Although the number of vendors has decreased from earlier this spring and summer, shoppers can still purchase a variety of pumpkins and gourds, apples, persimmons, Indian corn, cornstalks and hay bales.

But that’s not all.

The market also offers meat, including beef and chicken raised locally, eggs, butter and cheese made from local milk, locally produced honey, baked goods, crafts, soaps and even hot breakfast burritos and used books.

One vendor even sells mushrooms and papaws she collects from local wooded areas. Papaws are like a blend of kiwi, banana and mango.

This was the first year the market had an official manager, Celeste Bowman of Reddington.

Bowman is employed by the Greater Seymour Chamber of Commerce, and she and her family also farm and sell at the market.

Bowman said now that the season is almost over, she thinks recent changes to the farmers market, including set hours and more oversight, have had a positive impact.
