Farmers Market news and more (Thur update #2)

The Memphis Farmers Market invites you to come haunt the market at Gobblin’ Goodies tomorrow from 7 AM to 1 PM at the pavilion at Front and G.E. Patterson. Cookies, baked goods, and popcorn are among the items you can purchase there to hand out to trick-or-treaters that evening. There are even pet treats for those who show up at your door in four-legged costumes. Kids can make trick-or-treat bags from 9 to 11:30. There will be a costume contest for all ages – come down in costume, MFM will take your photo and post it, and judges will select a winner next week. Winner gets $10 in market tokens. Dress up your pet in costume for a Pet Boo Bash at 10. Live music by Adam Levin at 11. Note that this is the last week of the market for the 7 AM opening time; hours will be 8 AM-1 PM for the three weeks the market will be open in November.

From Memphis Daily News: Central Station design plans come into clearer focus. Plans include a six-screen Malco theater and a way to connect the Farmers Market to South Main. Work is expected to start in 2016 and be done by 2017.

Don’t forget tomorrow is the October wine tasting at Quench. “Like” Quench on Facebook to keep up with future events at the Downtown liquor and wine store.

Also tomorrow is the 16th South Main Sounds Songwriter Night

Frank McClallen, Steven Sciarra and Joseph Lee (Michigan) comprise the rounds, possibly one more to replace Melissa. It’s Halloween Weekend so you never know what will happen down on South Main-Join us, won’t you?”

Looking for event space? The River Inn of Harbor Town is doubling the size of its banquet hall in order to better accommodate requests.

Home from work. Time for beer and hopefully watching a Grizzlies game that goes better than last night’s.
