November 18 - Hubbard Squash Drop     time: 12:00 noon

" Drop in"  for a little bit of fun at the last event of MCFM season.   A number of years ago, as a farmer was packing up on the last market day, a large Hubbard squash rolled out of their truck and smashed into pieces. Rather than throw away some delicious Hubbard squash, the pieces were distributed to those still at the market. To mark the end of our market season, we'll drop our “ceremonial Hubbard squash ”. It'll be a "smashing good time" as we close another GREAT season at the MCFM.
