Harvest Festival Shines on Sunny Fall Day

Thank you to the hundreds of visitors who came out to enjoy the inaugural Fall Harvest Festival at Farmers Market Bay Meadows. Our team enjoyed greeting everyone at the entrance with Spice Cookies, courtesy of Crispian Bakery and complimentary Apple Cider from Hidden Star Orchards.


From one end of the Market to the other, kids were the fixtures tying together our fall fun. On the west end, accompanying Bon Bunales’ folk-rock musical stylings, was a band of young ones. These team of tots kept the place groovin’ on a variety of instruments – everything from bongos to xylophone to tambourines.

On the east end of the Market, the Sweetpeas Clubhouse was a flurry of activity. FIT4MOM San Mateo led a steady stream of young artists painting pumpkins. The result was an exotic mixture of gourds in every color and design imaginable.

Next to the pumpkin masterpieces, Happycake Face-painting transformed kids into tigers, kitty-cats, stars and stripes and even super heroes.


Meanwhile, the middle of the Market was the go-to spot for centerpieces and holiday wreaths. The multi-talented artist Cristal Chen and her project SweetBloomsCo led a group of adults in creating their own crafts for the holiday season. Cristal also offered hand-cut soaps for sale, in a variety of scents: Peony Rosehip, Lavender Almond, GreenTea & Aloe and Fig & Fern.


Some satellite fall fun was also to be found across Delaware Street in the Town Square where kids played and folks snapped selfies by the Mirror Labyrinth sculpture. Bay Meadows’ retailers were giving away samples and visitors lined up to try the new Roam Burgers.
