It’s a taste of the country in the heart of the city.
The Wyandotte Downtown Development Authority invites the community to its Farmer's Fair, from 4-7 p.m. today at the corner of First and Elm.
“Last year’s event was a huge success, and people of all ages had a great time,” Wyandotte DDA Director Natalie Rankine said. “We'll have sack races, three-legged races, a tug-of-war, produce contest, bounce and other activities for the whole family.”
Great American banjo player Al Allotta and his side-by-side banjos will entertain patrons beginning at 4 pm.
Activities will include a corn shucking contest at 5:15 p.m., an extreme pumpkin carving demonstration at 5:30 p.m. There will be contests and activities for kids, including a 3 legged race, potato sack races and a tug of war contest against members of the Wyandotte Fire Department.
The Downriver Council for the Arts also will be on-site with free hands-on crafts for kids from 4 to 7 p.m.
In addition, families can meet Farmer John and his Barnyard Express at the Market from 4-6 p.m.
Judging for a pie bakeoff starts at 5:30 p.m.
An array of fresh fruits and vegetables, plants, baked goods and dairy products will be available for purchase. All products sold at the market are either grown locally or include ingredients that are grown locally.
The Farmer's Fair closes out another season of the weekly farmers market.
