Celebrate fall with costumes, dancing and, of course, food at Findlay Market this season.
Starting Friday, Oct. 1, the market will be collecting gently used Halloween costumes for their annual neighborhood trick-or-treat event, the market says in a release. They encourage shoppers and community groups to donate. Kids will be able to pick them up for free on Halloween. Costumes can be dropped off at the Market Center (located in the middle of the Findlay Market market house) any time during business hours from Oct. 1-29.
Hispanic Heritage Month lasts from Sept. 15-Oct. 15, and Findlay market is celebrating it Saturday, Oct. 2, with a salsa night. The market says together with The Arepa Place and the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, they are hosting music and salsa lessons. The lessons will take place at Jane’s from 6-9 p.m. Alleguezson will be performing, and Diana Hoffman will be teaching lessons from 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Finally, Fall Food Fest is back and better than ever. The market says shoppers can enjoy the “best fall foods that market merchants and vendors have to offer.” Purchase tickets to sample fall-themed treats from over 30 vendors. Each ticket is good for one sample from one business. Findlay Market says the fest also features a spooky scavenger hunt for kids, a photo booth, specialty cocktails at Jane’s and live music all weekend long. The event takes place 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Oct. 16 and 17. Tickets are 5 for $10 or 12 for $20. Purchase tickets and find a list of participating businesses and their fall food at eventbrite.com.
