If you missed out on Saturday’s Pumpkin Patch and Maker’s Market, you’ve got one more chance to get in on the fun and purchase some unique items.

Stop by 901/903 W. Goodwin in Pleasanton, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. this Saturday, Oct. 16. This is the same location as the Royal Farmer’s Market and many of your favorite RFM vendors will be there.

“Having grown up in a big city, I was soon impressed with the number of very creative people living in this small community,” Artrageous owner Darla Royal said. “I’ve lived here almost 50 years now and that opinion has not changed.”

With all of the unique items for sale, you can support your local friends and neighbors and mark a few items off of your Christmas list.

What better reason could there be to get outside this weekend than the opportunity to stroll amongst the pumpkins and fall decor and shop local creations, many of which you may not be able to find anywhere else.

“The goal of the Maker’s Market is to give an opportunity for these people to shine among our friends,” Royal said. “We encourage both the youngest entrepreneurs and our oldest entrepreneurs to come together here. Our youngest vendor is in elementary school and our oldest vendors are in their 90s.”

Local artisans, craftspeople, builders, bakers, and farmers will sell their plants, quilts, supercute aprons of all sizes, pottery, barbedwire creations and jewelry, as well as jams, breads, cookies and other tasty treats and more.

“Our community is so supportive of them all. We love our community.” Royal added. “We may be small, but we do have a big time when we come together.”
