Winchester Farmers Market, October 13
October 13 at the Farmers Market Is Especially-for-Kids Day
Kids’ story read by Jane Sutton
At 11:30, hear author Jane Sutton read her book, The Trouble with Cauliflower. Sadie the ostrich makes a delicious meal, with cauliflower, for her best friend Mortimer, a koala. Doesn’t Sadie know that cauliflower gives Mortimer terrible bad luck? Mortimer doesn’t want to hurt his friend’s feelings and eats the stew. The next day he has awful bad luck. But what happens when Sadie makes him another mouth-watering meal?
Kids Table with Amy Rindskopf
At the monthly kids table, kids of all ages will find fruits and vegetables to taste, (safely) cut, and use to create art. Amy Rindskopf hosts the kids table on the second Saturday of each month, on the Waterfield Road side of the Big Tree. She chooses a fruit and a vegetable in season, and provides safe tools for children to handle and cut the fresh foods. There’s always material for an art project involving the food, such as last month’s sweet pepper stamps. Amy gives kids a free hand in the project, saying the kids are always more creative than anything she could dream up herself. Amy also provides a take-home sheet with recipes and fun facts about the foods used that day for kids and parents to use at home.

More About Town Common
The Commons is perfectly situated right in the center of town. It's a short walk from the commuter rail, Main Street and a number of other local shops and businesses in the area. It's an ideal place to take your lunch break as the large oak tree and water fountain have a truly calming effect on this passive park.
There are a number of benches and seating areas for residents to come and relax. There's also plenty of open space for members of the community to set up for a picnic on a warm Saturday afternoon. Just make sure from mid-June to September you leave enough room for the vendors of the weekly farmer's market to set up.
With Church and Main streets right around the corner, there's plenty of street parking - but be mindful, as there is a two-hour time limit.
