The public is invited to the South Boston Farmers Market Saturday from 8 to noon for its fall festival featuring children’s activities, food and music.
Pumpkins, face painting and a fall photo backdrop will be available for families.
“Pumpkins will cost $1, and we will have all the supplies to decorate it. We will be giving out free hot dogs and chips while supplies last,” said Kimberly Rich, the farmer’s market board president.
Parents are asked to bring a camera, Rich added.
The bluegrass band, Blue Drive, plans to play from 10 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. and 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.
The market also continues to accept donations to help the Halifax County Public Library System bring Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to the children of Halifax County.
Dolly Parton launched her Imagination Library in 1995 to promote childhood literacy in her home county in East Tennessee, motivated by her own father’s inability to read.
Today, the program mails more than one million books to children in participating communities around the world. Children participating in the Imagination Library program receive a free book each month from birth until the age of 5.
On Saturday, vendors plan to have apples, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, okra, peppers, string beans, greens, bread, canned goods, mums, handmade jewelry and barn quilts, according to Rich.
It also will be the last day of their Power of Produce program for this year.
Power of Produce allows children from 2-18 years old learn more about produce before receiving a $5 voucher to purchase an item at the market.
