October may be known most for celebrating our darker side but no other time of year do we celebrate around and with food on farms like we do this month. Hayrides, apple cider, pumpkins, corn mazes are the go to events but read on for some other opportunities for food access related events and work in the Foothills region.....
The Twin Sisters Farmers Market will be available for the rest of this month, so you have 3 more opportunities to shop. They will have a wide selection of fall vegetables so make sure to stop by. Don't forget that if you or anyone you know uses EBT they will be honoring triple your fresh bucks for the rest of the season. 

Look for the Twin Sisters Farmers Market's return next spring!
