The annual Hamilton Farmers Market Harvest Fest is Saturday, September 21.

The 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. market will again feature the Giant Pumpkin Weigh-off, with local pumpkins hauled into the site at South 3rd and Bedford. Then, Lakeland Feeds will use one of their forklifts to take the pumpkins to a set of scales to weigh the gourds.

There will also be a contest to "guess the weight" of the winning pumpkin. The winners will be registered on the Giant Pumpkin Commonwealth website.

For the kids, mini-pumpkin painting will be happening on the Ravalli County Museum lawn, and a "non-pumpkin" contest for Craziest, Smallest and Largest Veggie and Flower contest is planned.

Extra parking for the market has been provided on the east side of US 93, across from Bedford Street. Please use the pedestrian flags when crossing the highway.
