Scarecrow Festival highlights end of market season

The Clarence Hollow Farmers Market will close out its 15th season as it celebrates a “spooktacular” autumn.

The annual Hollow Scarecrow Festival has set the tone, as Main Street in the Hollow has been transformed into a gallery of imagination. Stroll along and enjoy all of the wonderful scarecrows on display from the fire hall to Kreher’s Farm.

On Saturday, Oct. 7, Hounds in the Hollow will return. The fun begins at 8 a.m. when friends and family gather for a cup of coffee and to select the best fall produce that the area has to offer. The Clarence Women’s Club will be hosting a chili fundraiser, and GRROWLS will be the animal rescue group of the week. Sample some wine from Freedom Run Winery or enjoy a delicious sandwich from the Clarence Center Coffee Co. as you are serenaded by local musician Shawn Duchscherer.

At 11 a.m., the Doggy Costume Parade begins. Everyone is welcome to dress up their pet and join us. Registration begins at 10 a.m. at the Country Store and prizes will be awarded. At noon, winners of the scarecrow contest will be announced.

The Clarence Hollow Farmers Market is open until the end of October. Stock up on apples and root vegetables, cider, maple syrup, fresh fall honey, pet treats, mums, dried and fresh-cut flowers, soaps, popcorn, baked goods, cocoa and teas, pastas, olive oils, fudge, spices, garlic, natural meats, eggs, cheese, artisan notecards and tie-dyed creations.

The Clarence Hollow Farmers Market is the state’s only “rails-to-trails” farmers market. It is conveniently located at 10717 Main St., Clarence, and runs rain or shine from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays, through October.
